Yakutia 24 TV channel: Pilot project on the secondary use of recycled motor oils have been launched in Aikhal MPP of ALROSA Diamond Mining Company.
The project implies cleaning of used engine oils with their further use to partially replace diesel fuel at production of emulsion explosives, widely used at the mining works.
Soiled engine oils of the company are stored at the area for further transportation to the special companies for utilization.
The secondary use will reduce the impact on the environment and allow to get significant economic effect due to reduction of utilization and purchased diesel fuel costs.
The pilot project on recycled use of motor oils is the part of ALROSA’s large-scale program to increase the operational efficiency and the costs’ reduction.
If the results of work in 2020 prove to be effective, the project will be implemented in another MPP of the company.
