In 2012, Rational Energies pioneered a commercial pyrolysis process plant to convert waste plastic into crude oil. As we gained experience and knowledge about the process, the price per barrel for crude oil collapsed, leading us to recognize that a change of course was necessary.
Today, Rational Energies has transformed our technology to utilize another waste stream, used motor oil (UMO), into Group I base oils, asphalt extender and distillate.
Used motor oil is a major environmental challenge – one gallon of UMO can contaminate the drinking water for over one million people.
With the technology and expertise at our disposal, Rational Energies continues to transform waste into valuable products.
