Lubricating oil is an important resource and a petroleum base product. The high price of oil and objective of saving valuable foreign exchange has resulted in efforts for regeneration of used lube oil. Mismanagement of waste lube oil is a serious environmental problem. Almost all types of waste oil have the potential to be recycled safely, saving a precious non-renewable source and at the same time minimizing environmental pollution.

Home - Biotechnology - Environmental pollution caused by oil extraction. Exploration and development of offshore oil and gas fields are not so far away. For example, the first exploration in the Gulf of Mexico began in the early s. No gas was produced by the United Kingdom until in the northern part of the North Sea. Initially, the environmental impacts of offshore operations were unknown and, consequently, regulations and quantitative standards were established for controlling the discharge of waste to these locations.
Palm oil is the most widely traded vegetable oil globally, with demand projected to increase substantially in the future. Almost all oil palm grows in areas that were once tropical moist forests, some of them quite recently. The conversion to date, and future expansion, threatens biodiversity and increases greenhouse gas emissions. Today, consumer pressure is pushing companies toward deforestation-free sources of palm oil. To guide interventions aimed at reducing tropical deforestation due to oil palm, we analysed recent expansions and modelled likely future ones.
