API Releases Preliminary Findings From Used Oil LCA 

NORA Executive Director Scott Parker and Senior Consultant Jack Waggener are participating as stakeholders in a Lifecycle Analysis (LCA) of Used Oil being conducted by the American Petroleum Institute. The LCA is looking at the California used oil sector and they are comparing the environmental impacts of extreme scenarios where all used oil is being processed to RFO, VGO, MDO or RR. They are also looking at the extreme scenario where all the used oil is informally managed (dumped). Preliminary findings were released on September 25th. Details will be shared at the 2014 NORA Conference in Puerto Rico.
