Universal Lubricants’ ECO ULTRA® Recycled Motor Oil Becomes Official Green Product of the Association of Independent Oil Distributors

WICHITA, Kan., March 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Universal Lubricants and the Association of Independent Oil Distributors (AIOD) have created a strategic supply and distribution relationship that will enable the association’s members to sell the company’s high quality ECO ULTRA® green motor oil to professional installers across the country. Made in the U.S. at the Universal Lubricants’ advanced refinery, ECO ULTRA® is an American Petroleum Institute (API) certified green motor oil that is made with up to 85 percent recycled used oil and meets Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) requirements and current vehicle manufacturers’ specifications.

The U.S. produces approximately 1.3 billion gallons of used oil each year, and only 10% of it is re-refined. The rest of the used oil is either improperly disposed of (damaging the environment) or burned as an industrial fuel and is gone forever. Universal Lubricants is working to reverse this trend through the launch of its ECO ULTRA® product line earlier this year.

“Crude oil is a finite natural resource, and our company is dedicated to making the best possible use of it. ECO ULTRA® has one of the highest percentages of recycled oil content and provides Americans the performance and reliability they expect in a top quality motor oil,” said John Wesley, chief executive officer of Universal Lubricants. “AIOD members can now help professional installers make the smart choice—the right choice—by using our ECO ULTRA® green motor oil.”

Utilizing a tightly controlled closed-loop process, Universal Lubricants collects used motor oil from across the country, processes it through the company’s technologically advanced refinery, and then blends the re-refined oil into high quality API certified motor oils and lubricants that meet SAE requirements and current vehicle manufacturers’ specifications. To ensure performance and reliability, the company’s ECO ULTRA® products go through rigorous lab testing and are real world proven for the most demanding driving environments.

ECO ULTRA® products are available in bulk, drums, pails, and quarts. For more information about Universal Lubricant’s ECO ULTRA® products, visit www.ecoultraoil.com.
