Recycling waste motor oil into reusable resources
Brent Technologies sources waste motor oil from various suppliers and recycles it into diesel fuel and motor oil using an innovative, low-cost technology. The wastes from the process are also used to make roofing shingles. These outputs are then sold to the market, creating an eco-friendly supply chain.
A wide network of collectors from various cities and suburbs helps supply waste motor oil to the refinery. The waste is collected weekly and suppliers are reimbursed for the resources supplied.
Brent Technologies Ltd originally developed the technology, and today organises the network of suppliers and processes and sells the motor oil, diesel and shingles.
Desbro Uganda Ltd is the largest chemical distributor in East Africa. They supply chemicals and other supplies used in the waste oil recycling process.
MK Transporters provide transportation services to the enterprise.
Muwonge Auto Supplies are oil product distributors who partner with the enterprise to redistribute the outputs from the recycling process.
