Existing law requires state agencies and contractors with state agencies to purchase lubricating oil, as defined, and industrial oil, as defined, containing the greatest percentage of recycled oil, unless a specified certification is made.

The California Oil Recycling Enhancement Act, administered by the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery, imposes a charge upon the sale of lubricating oil, for deposit in the California Used Oil Recycling Fund, and continuously appropriates money from the fund to the department to provide, among other things, grants and contracts to local governments, nonprofit entities, and private entities and recycling incentives to every industrial generator, curbside collection program, and certified used oil collection center for collected or generated used lubricating oil. Existing law prohibits the sale of engine oil and lubricating oil unless the product conforms to certain specifications.

Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes. State-mandated local program: no.
The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
(a) The Legislature finds and declares all of the
3(1) The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
4now considers pollution from all diffuse sources, including urban
5stormwater pollution, to be the most important source of
6contamination in our nation’s waters.
7(2) The EPA ranks urban runoff and storm sewer discharges as
8the second most prevalent source of water quality impairment in
P4 1our nation’s estuaries and the fourth most prevalent source of water
2quality impairment in our lakes.
3(3) Although the effects of runoff on specific waters vary and
4are often not fully assessed, pollutants carried by runoff are known
5to have potentially harmful effects on drinking water supplies,
6recreation, fisheries, and wildlife.
7(4) Among the pollutants in runoff are petroleum oil and oil
8byproducts, which have been shown to contain harmful
9constituents, including metals and polycyclic aromatic
11(5) Most of California’s population lives in urban and coastal
12areas where the water resources are highly vulnerable to, and are
13often severely degraded by, urban runoff.
14(6) Polluted storm water poses risks to public health and the
15ecology of local waterways.
16(7) A significant source of stormwater pollution will be reduced
17with the introduction of new technologies, such as biosynthetic
18lubricants, that will improve water and air quality in the state and
19reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
20(8) Biosynthetic lubricants have shown GHG
begin delete of as much as 88 percent,end delete as compared to similar
22petroleum-based synthetic lubricating oils.
23(9) Used motor oil is the largest volume of hazardous waste
24generated in California, with approximately 150 million gallons
25of motor oil purchased every year, generating over 90 million
26gallons of used oil. However, only about 76 million gallons are
27actually collected, and only about 10 to 12 million gallons are
28actually rerefined into motor oil. Most of the used oil is shipped
29out of state and burned as fuel, producing GHG emissions.
30(10) An estimated 14 to 16 million gallons of motor oil are
31illegally dumped, ending up in rivers, streams, and lakes, degrading
32drinking water supplies, and adding to storm water and coastal
33pollution. The remaining gallons are lost in use, either burned in
34the combustion chamber of an engine, or dripped onto streets and
35parking lots, creating a “silent oil spill” of approximately 60 million
37(11) Technologies now
begin delete existsend delete to supply a high
38performance, biobased, biodegradable blend of lubricating oil for
39use in gasoline and diesel engines in passenger cars, light-duty
40trucks, and vans. These biosynthetic lubricating oils have
P5 1performance qualities similar to or superior than other synthetic
2lubricants, with added environmental and public health benefits.
3(12) Independent testing shows not only that biosynthetic oils
4are among the highest rated products for protecting engines and
5machinery, thereby likely improving fuel efficiency, but they are
6also biobased, biodegradable, and do not bioaccumulate in marine
8(13) The United States Department of Agriculture’s
9BioPreferred program, which imposes procurement preferences
10on federal agencies and contractors for the purchase of biobased
11products, recently added a preference for motor oil, for certain
12 diesel and gasoline engines, that have at least 25 percent biobased
14(14) Biosynthetic lubricating oils degrade more rapidly than
15petroleum-based lubricants and are less toxic, thus greatly reducing
16environmental and public health risks. Thus, these new
17technologies will not only save the State of California and
18consumers money, but will improve air and water quality and
19reduce GHG emissions.
20(15) Used motor oil that is recycled and rerefined into motor
21oil can benefit from this new technology by blending the recycled
22oil with high performance, biobased, biodegradable products that
23have greater environmental and public health benefits.
24(16) By increasing the content of biobased products in
25lubricating oils, California taxpayers will benefit from lower costs
26of complying with the federal Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. Sec.
271251 et seq.).
35(b) The Legislature further finds and declares all of the

7 biosynthetic lubricating oil, when
10 The use of biosynthetic lubricating oil, as provided by this
11act, will further the state’s policy of reducing the state fleet’s
12petroleum consumption and protecting the environment.
14 The use of biosynthetic lubricating oil, as provided by this
15act, will help reduce overall petroleum consumption and aid the
16state in achieving its goals of reducing GHG emissions.
18 Vehicles using synthetic and biosynthetic lubricating oils
19require fewer oil changes, extending oil change

20 and thus reducing the quantity of lubricating oil used over the
begin delete life .
21of the vehicleend delete
23 While the cost of synthetic and biosynthetic
begin delete maybeend delete higher than conventional motor oil,
25when balanced against the longer oil change interval, using
26synthetic and biosynthetic oils becomes less expensive in the long
29 The benefits of longer intervals between oil changes, the
30reduced consumption of lubricating oil over the life of the vehicle,
31improved fuel efficiency, the reduction in GHG emissions, and
32the benefits to public health and the environment make biosynthetic
33lubricating oil a cost-effective alternative to petroleum-based
