Where is the Used Oil Market Headed? Mid-Year Meeting Lunch Speaker Added

Roy Schumacher with Schumacher Consulting has been added as the luncheon presenter during the NORA Mid-Year Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts from June 27-29, 2016. NORA members watch crude oil prices because it is a major driver in our industry. Some members monitor natural gas. But into today’s market, everyone is affected by so much more. Base Oil, VGO, VTAE, RFO, MDO and even propane are impacting local markets. Add in the major supply/demand factors in the asphalt industry redefining markets and suddenly markets have become much more complex.

NORA Releases Coles Environmental PCB Report: Submitted to EPA

NORA recently released the report to EPA by Coles Environmental concerning PCB's effects on the Used Oil Recycling System. The report, written by an independent environmental consultant, David G. Coles, relies on confidential interviews of 25 oil recyclers (most of whom also managed wastewater) who provided important statistics on the impacts of PCB contamination incidents. According to the report, the average cost of the largest PCB incident was approximately $2,000,000. NORA will be meeting with the EPA to discuss the report and NORA’s efforts for PCB reform.
