Abstract

An overview of the Australian used oil industry is presented to demonstrate that the industry relies heavily on the transport sector for its base stock. The sustainable transport paradigm is examined and employed to demonstrate that the enviro-political pressures impacting on transport in general, and carbon fuel use in particular, are substantial and may bring about technological change which could seriously challenge the viability of the used oil industry. Some green tools and techniques are discussed and an opinion is offered that such green tools and techniques, if correctly and consistently used, will help promote business sustainability and profitability.
