The group Chemie-Tech DMCC from the United Arab Emirates, through its subsidiary in Romania, Green Oil and Lubes SRL, is to invest 56 million euros in a plant that will recycle the oil used in the automotive industry. The plant will be located in Oltenita, in Romania's Calarasi County.

The group will borrow 15 million euros from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, EBRD, to finance part of the investment. The project also aims to create a national network for collecting the used oil, which will be processed in the new unit.

The factory’s development director, Adrian Petrus, is a former vice-president and financial director of Rompetrol, local Economica.net reported.

The plant will have the capacity to recycle 73,000 tons of used oil per year. It will be the first such factory in Romania and Central and Eastern Europe. The demand has been covered by imports so far.

Chemie-Tech DMCC built a similar factory in the Emirates and plans to build another one in South Africa.
