NexLube plans to begin construction of a used oil re-refinery and blending plant in Tampa, Florida, using Revivoil technology from Axens and Viscolube.

The facility is expected to process 24 million gal/year of dehydrated used oil.

The re-refinery unit will produce API Group II base oil and various grades of motor oil, hydraulic fluid, transmission fluid and other specialty products after on-site blending, officials said.

Re-refined products will be marketed in a closed-loop process, where NexLube will provide its branded products to a municipality or other customer that has its own fleet of vehicles.

The fleet uses the branded product and then returns the used oil to the re-refining plant.

The innovative Revivoil technology was jointly developed between Axens and Italy-based Viscolube, one of the world's leading spent lube oil re-refiners.

NexLube selected Revivoil based on commercial experience and superior yield of high-quality lube oil from used oil, it said.

Twelve units have been licensed using all or part of the Revivoil technology, the company said.
