Penrite Enviro Box™ (Today's solution, for a better tomorrow)

Innovation, premier quality and a focus on local manufacturing are three key attributes behind the 90 year plus Australian success story that is Penrite Oil Company.

It should therefore come as no surprise that Penrite, proudly Australian and family owned since 1926, is the first Australian lubricant manufacturer to introduce a new dispensing system that is kind to our environment, decreases packaging wastage, increases bulk lubricant storage capacity and increases workplace safety for trade customers .

Penrite has partnered with Cleanaway, Australia’s leading waste management company, to provide a simple option for disposing of the empty Enviro Box™ bladder bags for trade customers.

Customers will be given a choice between Enviro Box™ and the existing 20L plastic drums. Penrite understand there may still be some applications where the 20L drum may be better suited to your needs so the 20L plastic drum will remain available at this time. Plastic drums are still a viable option in wet or damp conditions.

To ensure the highest level of quality of the product, reusing used 20L plastic drum is not a current option due to risks including cross-contamination, integrity of container and internal quality accreditation standards. Enviro Box™ ensures no less than 85% of the packaging is recycled.
Unfortunately, at this point of time we only provide the 20L packaging. Penrite will continue to sell the 60L and 205L drums which are recyclable.
