IRVINE, CA- NORA Member Chemical Engineering Partners (CEP) and Gulf Solvents, located in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, are proud to announce the signing of a contract to build a 155,000 metric ton per year capacity re-refinery in Hail City, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to produce API Group II/II+ and III base oils. Gulf Solvents will be the first re-refiner to introduce the API Group II/II+ and III technology in Saudi and the largest in Middle East in terms of production.
Joshua Park, President/CEO of CEP and Abdulaziz Fahad Bin Ghazi, CEO of Gulf Solvents are looking forward to bringing US re-refining technology to Saudi. The re-refinery will be built in Hail City with the intention of possibly building additional plants throughout the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The facility will employ the state-of-the-art re-refining technology developed by CEP in various successful re-refineries around the world.
The CEP process will reduce CO2 output when compared to the refining of virgin crude oil and by preventing the used oil from being burned. While reducing the output of CO2, CEP technology also provides an endless life to the valuable lube oil found in crude oil, proving this to be a true green process. By using CEP technology, Gulf Solvents is demonstrating its commitment to protecting the environment.
Both CEP and Gulf Solvents believe this is a beginning of a long term relationship for future opportunities to bring the technology to the MENA region as well as rest of the world.
