Press Release from NORA Member Chemical Engineering Partners

Chemical Engineering Partners (CEP) is proud to announce the successful start-up of LWART’s re-refinery in Brazil. The capacity of the plant is 150,000 MT/year of used oil. It is the largest re-refinery in South America. It is also the first of its kind in South America; it is the only plant in South America including virgin crude oil refineries to produce API Group II base oils. CEP is excited to bring the state-of-the-art re-refining technology to Brazil. Brazil is a leader in environmental initiatives. It is the only country where used oil must be re-refined by law.

The LWART Group, headquartered in Lençóis Paulista, Brazil, has contracted CEP to design the plant. LWART is regarded as the largest company in South America in the field of collecting and re-refining of used oil.

CEP is regarded as the global leader in the re-refining technology. CEP’s re-refining process (CEP Process) is environmentally friendly that its process not only "renews” the used oil, but also reduces the overall CO2 emission when compared to burning the used oil. CEP is responsible for licensing the re-refining technology third parties. The CEP Process produces API Group II base oils. These base oils have been tested and certified by API. CEP has designed re-refineries around the world that use the CEP Process.
