Avista Oil – Waste Oil Collection

Avista is a closed loop oil collection and re-refiner offering a national service for the collection and onward up-cycling of waste oils, lubricants and other automotive and industrial wastes.

This is a joint venture business, initially founded by Acumen and now in shared ownership with Avista Oil AG. A pioneer in the up-cycling of used oil, Avista have re-refinery and collection logistics sites throughout Europe and in the US. Avista processes more than 700,000 tonnes per annum of used oil and emulsions, converting them back to high quality oil products and lubricants.

Avista’s main UK processing facility is in Wolverhampton, West Midlands and with a network of depots in the north-East, Yorkshire and the Home-Counties, Avista can provide nationwide coverage, often on a next-day service.

Avista collects used oil directly from the doorsteps of customers, utilising a specialist collection fleet. The oil is then taken to our main UK processing facility for testing and treatment prior to being exported from the UK, via Avista’s own harbour terminal in the Danish town of Kalundborg, for onward re-refining.

Avista supports our customers in terms of a safe and environmentally-friendly disposal of used oil, irrespective of size and industry – from very small to large industrial companies.

All necessary quality analysis, for incoming used oil volumes, are conducted at the certified laboratories of the re-refineries on site. After it has been analysed, the used oil enters the patented re-refining process – an efficient and environment-friendly upcycling process.

As provider of all-in-one solutions, Avista provide all-inclusive packages for our customers: from initial advice over documentation to the final disposal.
