Hongda Petrochemical Company Ltd. plans to build a 100,000-ton lubricant recycling and blending facility in three stages, including a unit to process 25,000 tons per year of used mineral oils, a unit to re-refine 30,000 t/y of oily waste products, and a 45,000 t/y blending plant.
The first phase of the 100,000-ton lubricant recycling project began operations at Zhanjiang Hongda Petrochemical in the Lingang Industrial Park on December 28, 2017, offering an environmentally friendly solution to waste oil in the city.
Covering 4.3 hectares, and at an investment of 190 million yuan (US$29 million), it is expected to produce high-end lubricants by extracting and processing used mineral oil and oily waste from Zhanjiang and the surrounding areas.
Zhanjiang is located at the southwestern end of Guangdong province, in the People’s Republic of China.
Listed among the top 50 enterprises in Zhanjiang, Hongda is mainly involved in sales of fuel oil, petroleum products, bitumen and sulphur. With products sold to Guangdong, Yunnan, Guizhou and other provinces, it reaps 1.2 billion yuan annually.
