Now, more than ever, we are aware of the environmental consequences of our actions. Both individuals and organizations are dedicated to adhering to ecological rules and regulations designed to mitigate environmental damage.
One of the many problems that environmentalists face is waste oil recycling and disposal.
According to the EPA, “...used oil from one oil change can contaminate one million gallons of fresh water — a years’ supply for 50 people!”
Problems mainly arise when used oil isn't properly disposed. Such oil can pollute rivers, harm plants, affect wildlife and seep through the ground, potentially contaminating drinking water. That is why processes that remove excess oil from wastewater, like oil skimming, are so important for running an ecologically friendly business.
