SPENT OILS KZN (PTY) LTD

OIL COLLECTION FOR CRADLE TO GRAVE RECYCLING

WE COLLECT ALL OVER, KWAZULU - NATAL, SOUTH AFRICA

Under no circumstances is the used vegetable oil recycled into the animal feed industry or recycled for human consumption

After the oil is collected from various outlets, it undergoes a refining process, then it is graded and sold to various companies where the following products are made:

  • Paint base
  • Putty
  • Biodiesel
  • Chemicals as a base
  • Mold release

Due to Carbon Footprint awareness, Biodiesel plants have sprung up all over South Africa. The advantages of biodiesel are as follows:

  • 80% less CO2 emissions, 100% less sulphur dioxide which decreases pollution
  • Degrades four times faster than fossil fuel
  • Carbon footprint on the environment is minimised
  • Safer to store

ABOUT SPENT OILS KZN

Spent Oil KZN was started in 1999, in Queensburgh, Durban, South Africa, by Stephen Scullard, with just one vehicle on the road collecting used oil.

By 2004 there were five vehicles operating throughout KwaZulu Natal, with each vehicle collecting up to 1000lts of used oil daily.

In 2009 two 5 ton trucks was purchased to cope with the longer trips around KZN, and the staff complement increased to 11. This necessitated the acquisition of new premises in New Germany.

Spent Oil KZN is a recognised oil collector in the KwaZulu Natal province, with major food outlets making use of our services. Large retail stores, such as Pick ‘n Pay, SPAR and others make use of our services. Spent Oils KZN is also recognised by the eThekwini Health Department, and regular audits are accordingly conducted at the business to ensure compliance.

We have been assessed for, and are currently awaiting, the relevant ISO status.
