New Technology

Our objective is to become the first global lubricant manufacturer with a carbon neutral footprint for its blending process

We are extremely proud to have developed a unique blending system based on the use of Ultrasound. “Blendtek”, as we call the new process, removes the need for base oils and product formulas to be heated up for long periods of time using traditional gas energy.

“Our objective is to become the first global lubricant manufacturer that has a carbon neutral footprint for its blending process”
Nigel Bottom Managing Director

As manufacturers of a huge range of different viscosity lubricants, this new technique enables us to blend thousands of tonnes of products using solar panels and a simple 13amp plug, saving time, energy and drastically reducing our carbon footprint. To blend 10 tonnes of product now takes less than half an hour and previously the same blend would have taken several hours to complete.

To evaluate the savings to the environment since 2016, we have saved over 19,500 tonnes of carbon and heated the equivalent of over 107 homes in the UK for a year. We continue to expand our Blendtek technology and are in talks with many other businesses to offer this incredible new process to other companies throughout the UK and abroad.

Our aim is to become the first lubricant manufacturer in the world to have a carbon neutral blending process and we are immensely proud of this innovation and all that we are doing within our business to help the environment.
