Shell launches used oil management service


Shell has partnered with IFP Petro Products (P) Ltd. for used oil collection. The new initiative aims to organise India’s waste oil disposal system and increase the re-refining rate.

Mansi Tripathy, Vice President, Shell Lubricants Asia Pacific, said, “Used oil management service is the latest testament of how we are leading the process of reducing waste alongside the industry’s larger environmental footprint in India. We aim to play a pivotal role in embedding a circular economy in lubricants and see a high growth potential for this service to reduce waste and our overall emissions. We will continue to seek opportunities to support our customers in reducing their emissions via our products and services.”

“Being a solutions-driven, customer-centric organization is at the core of our business model. This initiative reinforces that value and will help us support our customers with a more holistic value proposition beyond lubricants. Even more significant is that we now have the opportunity to pioneer the first step towards a circular economy,” added Debanjali Sengupta, Country Head, Shell Lubricants India.

Shell plans to strengthen its network of partners further to scale up the initiative in the coming years.
