It Ain’t Easy Being Green

AMSOIL INC. is headquartered in the land of 10,000 lakes. Imagine clean, blue water, pine trees for days, and wildlife that roams free. It is a beautiful place and we do our best to not take it for granted.

Earth Day is a great time to reflect on how fortunate we are to live in such a beautiful place and work for such an environmentally friendly company.

We are proud of our environmental stewardship and know that being a green and clean company is good for business and essential for the future of the Earth and our company.

The AMSOIL Center

We maintain a rigorous recycling program throughout our corporate facilities where we recycle the majority of materials we use, including:

  • Corrugated liner board (cardboard)
  • Used drums
  • Pallets
  • Clean plastic bottles
  • Office and glossy paper
  • Aluminum and glass
  • Computer equipment
  • Batteries, light bulbs, oil filters and more

Less than 10 percent of the waste AMSOIL generates ends up in the landfill, and the 400,000-sq. ft. AMSOIL Center produces only one dumpster load of waste every six weeks.

We use residual production oil to heat our facility in the winter, reducing energy costs. We have a high-efficiency roof and use Big Ass Fans to move massive amounts of air quietly and efficiently. In addition, we converted a large section of the asphalt parking lot at the AMSOIL Center to green space. Our Environmental Management System is also registered to the ISO 14001:2004 standard, providing third-party confirmation that we’re actively measuring and seeking to improve our environmental impact.

AMSOIL Products

Our dedication to the environment lies at the heart of how we operate our facilities in Superior, Wis., but it is also instilled in our products.

AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil is guaranteed for 25,000 miles/700 hours of operation/one year, whichever comes first, in normal service (15,000 miles/700 hours/one year in severe service). By safely extending oil-change intervals, Signature Series dramatically reduces waste oil. If every passenger car/light truck in America practiced extended drain intervals using Signature Series, up to 35.7 billion quarts of oil would be eliminated from the supply stream.

HP Marine Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil offers a unique combination of high performance and low aquatic toxicity. Testing developed by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development reveals a 100 percent survival rate of Daphnia Magna neonates (water fleas) and fathead minnows exposed to increasing concentrations of HP Marine mixed in water. With HP Marine, you’re taking care of your equipment and the environment.

SABER Professional Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil features low smoke, low-odor and low toxicity, producing fewer emissions at a 100:1 mix ratio than other oil mixed at 50:1. Equipment operators subjected to smoke and fumes benefit from these low-emission properties.

AMSOIL Low-Toxicity Antifreeze & Coolant is made with propylene glycol, a biodegradable chemical that is easier to recycle than its ethylene-glycol counterparts. Its low toxicity limits poisoning risk.

What You Can Do

The used oil from one oil change can contaminate 1 million gallons of fresh water – a year’s supply for 50 people. So don’t forget to recycle your used oil container and used oil. To find local recycling options near you, visit Earth 911 or call 1-800-CLEANUP. Recycling just two gallons of used oil can generate enough electricity to run the average household for nearly 24 hours.

And, obviously, you can use AMSOIL products to help reduce waste oil, increase fuel economy and reduce harmful exhaust emissions.
