Gen III

Corporate profile

Gen III Oil Corp is an innovative oil processing company with the most advanced re-refining process in the industry. Our proprietary ReGen™ technology allows us to produce large quantities of the highest quality products.

Re-refining used motor oil captures the limited amount of lubricating oil produced from virgin crude and transforms it back into high quality base lubricating oil. This not only recovers a valuable resource, but prevents used oils from being disposed of improperly, or burned as a fuel.

Traditional re-refiners can only produce Group I and Group II base oils, which are used in lower quality engine oils and some industrial applications. Gen III has the ability, using its ReGen™ technology, to produce a 55% yield of Group III, which is the highest quality base lubricating oil used to produce high performance synthetic grade motor oil. Group III base oil is in high demand as more automakers are requiring the use of better quality motor oils and consumers switch to synthetic grade motor oils. The current North American production can only supply about 25% of this demand. It is estimated that Gen III’s first refinery will displace approximately 10% of the current Group III imports to help satisfy this demand while diverting a potentially hazardous waste stream.

Not only is this the highest value end use for used motor oil, but also the most environmentally responsible. The Bowden facility will reduce CO2 emissions by an amount equivalent to taking 76,000 cars off the road each year, compared to production of base oil from virgin crude.
