Going green? How your engine oil impacts the environmentPosted by Amsoil, 13th July 2017

It is important to reflect on how fortunate we are to live on such a beautiful planet and how each one of us can contribute to helping the environment. At AMSOIL, we are proud of our environmental stewardship. By recycling used oils and using AMSOIL synthetic motor oils, you can help preserve Australia’s nature and keep its inhabitants healthy, too.

Our headquarters are in Wisconsin, USA, land of 10,000 lakes with clean, blue water, pine trees and where wildlife roams free. Our dedication to the environment lies at the heart of how we operate our headquarter facilities. Even more importantly, it is instilled in our products.

Environmentally-friendly motor oil company

AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil is tested and guaranteed in the United States for 40,000 km/700 hours of operation/one year (whichever comes first) in normal service or 24,000 km/700 hours/one year in severe service. By safely extending oil-change intervals, it dramatically reduces waste oil. If every vehicle in Australia practiced extended drain intervals using Signature Series motor oil, over 318 million hectoliter of oil would be eliminated from the supply stream, making the Signature Series the environmentally-friendly motor oil choice.

What you can do

The used oil from one oil change can contaminate 3.7 million liters of fresh water – a year’s supply for 50 people. So don’t forget to recycle your used oil container and used oil. Recycling just seven liters of used oil can generate enough electricity to run the average household for nearly 24 hours.

Use AMSOIL synthetic motor oils to help reduce waste oil, increase fuel economy and reduce harmful exhaust emissions.

The AMSOIL Centre

We maintain a rigorous recycling program throughout our corporate facilities where we recycle most of the materials we use, including:

Less than 10% of the waste AMSOIL generates ends up in landfills, and the 35,000 m2 AMSOIL Centre produces only one skip-load of waste every six weeks.

We use residual production oil to heat our facility in the winter, reducing energy costs. We have a high-efficiency roof and use ‘Big Ass’ Fans to move massive amounts of air quietly and efficiently. In addition, we converted a large section of the asphalt parking lot at the AMSOIL Centre to green space. Our Environmental Management System is also registered to the ISO 14001:2004 standard, providing third-party confirmation that we’re actively measuring and seeking to improve our environmental impact.

We know that being a clean and green motor oil company is good for business and essential for the future of the Earth and our business. We never take the environment for granted and that’s why AMSOIL motor oil is the ecological choice.
