ExxonMobil’s Global Lubricant Operations Receives Zero Waste to Landfill Silver Validation


SPRING, Texas – ExxonMobil announced its global network of lubricants blending and packaging plants, which manufacture all Mobil-branded products, has received the Zero Waste to Landfill Silver validation from UL.


As the first petroleum products company to secure this validation, ExxonMobil is successfully diverting over 90 percent of the waste produced in its global plant network from local landfills. More than 50,000 tons of waste produced per year are being redeployed into new, productive uses that will bring greater value to the environment and the economy. This achievement, which required ExxonMobil to identify 14 waste products produced at its facilities that could be avoided, reused or recycled and implementing diversion techniques, demonstrates the company’s commitment to reducing environmental impact and enables more sustainable Mobil-branded lubricant choices.


“Airlines continue to prioritize their sustainability goals and need to collaborate with partners that share the same values,” said Ali Bakr, global aviation lubricants sales manager at ExxonMobil. “This validation demonstrates our commitment to running


a sustainable operation while continuing to provide exceptional performance solutions.”


ExxonMobil’s waste management program is implemented worldwide. Examples of the program include a device to drain aerosol cans in an environmentally conscious manner, allowing the metal and liquid to be recycled at the company’s production plant in Port Allen, Louisiana.


“For a company like ExxonMobil, which has operations facilities across the globe, achieving UL’s Zero Waste to Landfill Silver validation is no easy feat,” said Alberto Uggetti, vice president and general manager at UL. “The program’s rigorous validation process is designed to recognize companies that handle waste in environmentally responsible and innovative ways, and ExxonMobil has implemented a comprehensive, far-reaching program that meets this rigor and reflects its commitment to operating in an environmentally responsible way.”
