Best practices

Due to the hazardous nature of used oil, industries must observe its correct extraction and storage to avoid leakage, as well as its correct labelling to identify content and avoid mistakes. Also, the waste must be collected by an authorised manager within a maximum of six months.

Cutting fluids

Cutting fluids used in industrial processes show a small amount of used oil compared to the total amount of waste and they include a high percentage of water and metal particles. The collection of this kind of waste implies higher costs and it cannot be done free of charge. For this reason, there is an additional finance fee of €12 per managed tonne of the waste oily part.
