Greece Ranks 1st in Europe in Management of Waste Lubricating Oils

ATHENS – The National Collective System for Alternative Management of Waste Lubricating Oils (ENDIALE) recorded a performance above the corresponding European ones in 2021 and exceeded national targets, according to figures released on Monday.

“Greece remains at the top in Europe for the management of waste lubricating oils, surpassing national goals for another year. This confirms the important advantages of the Collective Alternative Management System and the systematic effort implemented by all participants in it,” the announcement said.

Specifically, in 2021, 25,952 tons of waste lubricating oil was collected, out of a total of 36,720 tons that are estimated to have been produced, ie 71 pct (national target 70 pct).

In addition, 100 pct of the collected lubricant waste were taken for regeneration, with significant benefits for the environment, public health and the national economy, which were presented in detail.

This performance exceeds the national target by 20 pct (which called for 80 pct regeneration) and the corresponding European average (61.2 pct) by 40 pct.
