Turkish re-refinery completes one year of operations

TAYRAŞ and Sequoia announced the completion of one year of operations of TAYRAŞ’ state-of-the-art re-refining plant located in Osmaneli, Turkey. The plant is capable of processing 60,000 metric tons per year of the waste oil into high quality API Group II+ base oil, meeting the most stringent specifications for sulphur, VI, volatility and even polyaromatic hydrocarbons concentrations. Sequoia designed, specified and supplied all process equipment for the used lubricating oil processing plant based on its vacuum distillation and hydrogeneration technologies. Sequoia has granted exclusive access to its technologies to TAYRAŞ for Turkey and its neighboring countries.

Mehmet Afşin, Chairman of TAYRAŞ’s Board said: "It is a great opportunity and challenge to bring a new re-refinery alive. Whilst supply and sales has been organized local, the international technology provided by Sequoia is the heart of the  undertaking. Sequoia´s team did a great job by providing the core components on time in high quality. More important is the outstanding ongoing advice and cooperation with our young local employees. I thank Rohit and his staff and our dedicated team led by Ertuğrul Kılıç  for their enthusiasm and successful diligent work.“
