NORA Board of Directors Approves Position Statement on Re-Refined Content on Finished Lubricants
Position statement endorses a minimum re-refined content of 50% base oil in finished oil products labeled as re-refined or recycled

Haymarket, VA (July 30, 2012) – NORA’s Board of Directors recently approved the NORA Position Statement on Re-Refined Content on Finished Products that recommends a minimum re-refined content of 50% base oil in finished oil products labeled as re-refined or recycled.

The association’s Re-Refined Lubricant Working Group unanimously approved the position statement on June 21 at the 2012 NORA Mid-Year Meeting in Baltimore, MD. NORA’s Board of Directors subsequently approved the position statement on June 22.

The full position statements says: "Resolved, that NORA, in an effort to provide authoritative guidance in the determination of re-refined content in a finished oil product that is labeled "re-refined or recycled” hereby endorses a minimum re-refined content of 50% base oil as a percentage of the total base oil component (before additives are added) in a finished oil product in order to be labeled as re-refined or recycled. NORA also recommends for market transparency and disclosure that these products labeled as re-refined or recycled list the percentage of re-refined content on the label.”
