Southern Oil privately owned Australian company Cradle to cradle treatment of oil Southern Oil re-refines 8 percent of Australian waste lube oil Re-refinery would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 1 million tonnes per year
Southern Oil Refining is a private, 100% Australian owned company, based in Wagga Wagga, NSW, which has been re-refining waste lube oil since 2001.
Southern Oil’s re-refining process is a “cradle to cradle” treatment of oil and the highest form of recycling
Southern Oil can re-refine 38% of Australia’s annual waste/used lube oil production and help producers achieve the best environmental outcome for their waste oil.
If all of Australia’s collected waste oil was re-refined instead of burned, greenhouse gas emissions would be reduced by about 1 million tonnes per year.

Southern Oil re-refines waste lube oil for reuse as lube oil – its best and highest use and a cradle-to-cradle solution. We produce no waste, reduce the need for oil imports and our product has a significantly smaller carbon footprint than crude base oils.
