Used Oil Regeneration

Used Oil Services

Veolia North America takes an environmentally-sound approach to regenerating used engine oil from automobiles, machines and heavy equipment.  We provide used oil collection, transportation and audited third-party recycling services from several of our operating facilities in the United States.  We also operate a used oil regeneration facility in St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, where we are regenerating used oil into a valuable feedstock for refiners and other industrial plants.

At the St. Hyacinthe facility, Veolia uses a sequence of dehydration, gas oil recovery/separation and fractionation to regenerate used engine oil to produce vacuum gas oil (VGO). The VGO will then be used by oil companies to produce new lubricating oils. Other commercial residual products will also be generated, including asphalt and LVGO (light vacuum gas oil), leaving no unrecoverable by-product.
