Mobil commits to 50% recycled content

Exxonmobil if exploring more recycled content to decrease dependency on oil.

ExxonMobil Lubricants India, a regional subsidiary of US oil giant ExxonMobil, has launched plastic buckets in India made from 50% post-consumer recycled content.

Each year, it recycles more than 90% (over 50 000 tonnes) of the waste from its lubricant operations into new productive uses. It says it is the first and only finished lubricants marketer to be awarded the Underwriters Laboratories Zero Waste to Landfill certification (silver category).

‘We can help create value by advancing customers’ mobility, productivity, and sustainability ambitions,’ says Vipin Rana, chief executive officer, ExxonMobil Lubricants India. ‘Our initiative to transition to 50% post-consumer recycled plastic pails is just one example of how we are advancing our customers’ sustainability ambitions.

‘We understand the ever-changing needs of our customers and stakeholders and are committed to operating our business in an accountable and sustainable manner, supplying feature products by minimising the environmental impacts, and supporting the communities in which we operate.’

In December, ExxonMobil started operations at its large-scale advanced chemical recycling facility in Baytown, Texas. The site uses proprietary technology to transform 80 000 tonnes of hard-to-recycle plastics a year into raw materials.
