One gallon of oil is enough to contaminate a year’s worth of drinking water for 50 people, according to the EPA. However, if re-refined, that one gallon of oil is enough to produce 2.5 quarts of usable re-refined lubricating oil.
Freeborn’s Environment and Energy Practice Group has unique experience working with oil re-refineries. We uphold our core values of care and integrity by supporting these companies in helping to increase the availability of affordable oil while also decreasing the risk that oil contamination poses to communities. Our work in this area includes counseling on issues regarding shipping, permitting, contamination, and compliance.
