  • Analysis of Used Oil Policy Management Options - February 2009 »

    Final report for the Waste Authority of WA produced by Oakdene Hollins Ltd.

    In the light of the disruption caused to the used oil collection and processing infrastructure during 2006/07, the Department, on behalf of the Waste Authority, wishes to investigate options that will improve the certainty of service provision for used oil collection and processing across the State. It is this wish that forms the principle objective of this study.

  • Final Report: Used oil management options study. Part A: Report on the WA used oil market - Nov 2008 »

    Since the storage crisis in 2007 the market for used oil derived products has evolved substantially. New markets for burner fuel oil that are outside mainland WA have been found, and the stockpile that began accumulating in 2004 has been completely cleared. Wren Oil and Nationwide are in the final stages of establishing a Joint Venture arrangement, and have committed to building new storage and export infrastructure in Bunbury. Local government tender Market power The PSO program Executive summary xi Generators of used oil broadly report that collection services are operating well, and the probability of a sudden sustained disruption to collection services is unlikely. Provided it remains possible to export used lube oil derived burner fuel products, markets for burner fuel oil over at least the medium term but probably much longer are positive. The Joint Venture is however committed to the development of a lube-to-lube re-refining plant, and the prospects for products produced from such plants are positive over the long-term. The viability of a lube-to-lube re-refining plant in Western Australia is however dependent on the continuation of a PSO payment for re-refined lube oil.
