NORA Member Rational Energies Marks Million Gallon Production Milestone

Only one year after a decision to completely retrofit their manufacturing facility, the Advanced Process Division of NORA Member Rational Energies has successfully processed their first million gallons of used motor oil into Group 1 RE150 Base Oil, Distillate and Asphalt Extender.

“This is a huge milestone for Rational Energies,” stated Founder and CEO Ed Driscoll. “Our processing plant in Plymouth, Minnesota was designed and built in 2012 to convert landfill plastic into crude oil. But the collapse of global crude oil prices led us to change course and turn another waste product – used motor oil – into valuable industrial lubricants. It’s a tribute to our production team that they were able to develop a sustainable, high-quality capacity so quickly and enable us to continue ‘transforming energy’.”

In addition to Group 1 Base Oil and Fuel, Rational Energies supplies finished blended lubricants available in totes or shipped by tanker trucks and rail cars.
