Shell Lubricants offers a new product alternative to traditional plastic packaging for motor oil called ECOBOX ™
Shell ECOBOX ™ efficiently delivers oil to engines and significantly reduces plastic waste
Shell Lubricants now offers an innovative product called Ecobox™, an alternative to traditional plastic packaging for motor oil.
The Ecobox™ System Will Allow Installers to:
- Offer a wide range of specialty oils with added convenience
- Help improve speed and ease over bottles by requiring less handling than quart bottles
- Reduce storage space of bottles – the Ecobox™ System is about one-half the size of the equivalent volume of single quart cases
- Reduce waste and the cost associated with waste removal
Through its design, Ecobox™ can help owners and operators of oil change facilities more efficiently store, manage and deliver oil to their customers’ vehicles. The bag containing the oil in the Ecobox™ carton is designed to help improve speed and ease of use compared to bottles, as it drains quickly, leaves minimal residual oil behind and requires less handling than quart bottles.
Using the Ecobox™ plastic liner results in 89% less plastic landfill waste than the equivalent 24 quart plastic bottles, and the Ecobox™ carton is fully recyclable. The Ecobox™ pump system provides motor oil delivery that helps improve many operational tasks associated with dispensing oil using individual quarts.
The Ecobox™ is part of Shell’s ‘smarter mobility’ approach to developing innovations for cleaner and more efficient transport of people and goods. Smarter mobility has three elements: smarter products, smarter use and smarter infrastructure. The effort is not just a concept; it is evident in Shell’s work every day to help accelerate the global shift to cleaner, more energy efficient road transport. The Ecobox™ system is a prime example of smarter use, through smarter packaging.
Oil is easily dispensed from the specially engineered box and valve, and then transferred to the engine crankcase by a custom-designed Ecobox™ pump system. The Ecobox™ carton can reduce storage space in shops, as it is about one-half the size of the equivalent volume of single-quart cases.
As the number of viscosity grades installed locations are required to keep on hand continues to increase, the Ecobox™ system can allow installers to offer a wider range of specialty oils to meet customers’ needs by making it easy to stock and install a number of different motor oils without the need for bulk storage.
Easy-to-read Ecobox™ carton labeling and the specially organised storage rack help technicians select and install the correct oil, while delivery of oil to the vehicle is simplified through no-drip digital metered delivery nozzles.
