The primary objective of the HST is to:
  • Maximise the recovery of effluent from end of life activities (e.g., used engine oil, slop),
  • Prevent its release into the environment, and make it available for recycling (mainly lube‑to‑lube   recycling, and qualifying burning fuels). We believe, nothing of 3000MT /year slops oil is recovered in Djibouti to ‘single use’ applications or disappears into inappropriate disposal destinations.
The secondary objectives of the HST include:
  • To maximise the economic value of the recycled oils; and the scheme is to be an Extended Producer Responsibility scheme, funded by industry
  • To collect from wherever the slop can be generated and stored.
  • To ensure recycling activities and do not create harm to the environment or human health;
