Rational Energies Rebrands as Rational Resource, Unveils New Product Strategy and Expansion Plans

Read More

While the big refiners tap a finite natural resource, crude oil, Rational Resource cleans and repurposes used motor oil (UMO) into base oils for the manufacture of industrial lubricants.

Rational Resource creates a consistent, high-quality end product while taking a toxic contaminant out of the waste stream.

About

Rational Resource is the evolution of Rational Energies. Established in 2007, the company pioneered a commercial pyrolysis process plant to convert waste plastic into crude oil, an expensive commodity at the time.

With crude oil prices plummeting to a 30-year low, Rational disconnected from the turbulence of the global oil markets, and adapted our technology and business model. The company re-branded as Rational Resource to take advantage of abundant supply streams of UMO and a stable market for base oils.

Process

We work with professional used motor oil aggregators who collect UMO, test it and pre-filter it before it is delivered to our advanced oil processing facility. Upon receipt, our in-house laboratory then conducts additional tests. Our production process starts with distillation, which divides the feedstock into different products. Additional processing manipulates flash point, viscosity and color. After a final quality control test our product is ready for shipment.

Our manufacturing process ensures consistent product quality, and flexibility to meet the needs of our customers.
