Used Oil Collection
Used oil is pumped by licensed tankers from customers’ storage tanks or drums by trained technicians. Once collected, Gem State processes and re-uses the oil following all Local, State, and Federal regulations. Used oil is transported to our Boise, ID operation, where it is sampled and tested at an off-site lab for quality and adherence to marketing specifications. Once approved, it is ready to be marketed as an on-specification fuel for resale as a premium burner fuel substitute for virgin fuel sources throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Non-Regulated Oily Debris
EcoLube’s package truck drivers collect drums of oily debris from our customer’s locations. These materials are properly characterized and profiled before pickup to ensure proper processing and final disposal at an EPA-permitted facility.
Gem State Oil combines with EcoLube to provide appropriately labeled containers for the storage, accumulation, and collection of used oil filters at customer sites. Once collected by our package truck drivers, used oil filters are processed at our Boise, ID plant to remove any remaining excess used motor oil. The filters are cubed and then shipped to a local metal recycler for use in the manufacturing of various steel products.
Spent Antifreeze Collection and Products
Gem State Oil combines with EcoLube to collect both bulk and containerized spent antifreeze from customer locations in our package trucks. The spent antifreeze is then shipped to a permitted and EPA-approved antifreeze re-manufacturing facility for processing into new glycol. Gem State and EcoLube’s coolant products are manufactured using the Ethylene Glycol from the spent antifreeze.
ASTM-specification new coolant products and the associated containers and equipment solutions for dispensing them, including electric, on-demand pumping systems for high volume applications. Conventional and extended life light duty/heavy duty coolants are available in concentrate and 50/50 pre-mix in a variety of different colors to suite your specific needs.
