Some would say that auto racing's by the least green thing you can do right well.
Maybe so but there are companies out there that are trying to help out -- any way that they can make it a little more environmentally conscious joining us now is the president CEO of safety -- Fred or Jan I guess the last name right you did grind that it will welcome some -- say -- loyal NASCAR can't be green but you are doing what you can't see it being which is.
Recycling oil fell absolutely.
Safety -- one of the largest recyclers in North America.
And we specialize in taking automotive formula I race cars as a hobby so we're always company all the -- absolutely and I -- recycle center literally at every racetrack in North America.
We take all the automotive fluids used oil.
At a regular for oil absolutely and we recycle it -- refining.
And talent -- -- -- -- are absolutely and we're their environmental.
Services provider and we have been since 1987.
Literally we take all of their oil related absorbent materials etc.
during the race after the race to get back to our branches.
Recite it is very a lot of people may not go no I mean it's like when -- race at Watkins -- whatever I mean it's very tightly controlled what you can do with the oil Iraq is change of oil in the pits in the things fell.
If everything is very and -- you gotta go to certain spots you guys -- taken all that stuff.
And then putting -- back in your basement and sending people home do with tin -- absolute or should be that should be doing.
Yes absolutely not everybody does but we do have a recycle center literally in the pets and we take great care to get all that automotive fluid and recycle.
We also provide -- parts tortures.
Are -- technologies so that they yeah.
When they're fixing the race cars and tampering with the engines they can they can use our machines to.
Do it effectively and not -- -- -- my jacket to -- -- they -- to -- those parts pretty heavy duty.
No question -- -- water.
Now if I -- -- -- liquor is Andre gets a lot of minutes mineral spirits solvents and it's very yeah needs to be handled carefully interesting voters as well so I guess some people could theoretically going to be using the same oil that.
Jeff Gordon's matter fact dead kind of -- I didn't Superman's blood or some.
Today being there Earth Day and we've been.
Announced that we're selling our eco car which is -- refined recycled motor oil.
To the public literally for the first time we -- -- this this is this the mock up right what is this this is a mock up.
Well actually that's probably use -- well yeah that's Dale Earnhardt junior's rhythm I think last race and actually they need to win exact way.
And and this this motor oil was used in a race car.
What we will -- -- -- that's a little that's real well that's real well will take that.
We'll take that into our branches into our network.
Take it to our refineries and recycle it.
And they'll come out.
Just like he had any -- a bigger container this is obviously light of the inner core I get death make absolutely so basically you can buy up.
The consumer could you know NASCAR -- and there are a lot of NASCAR and people are very loyal to NASCAR some Vietnamese flags hung in some -- five million fans and then literally if you if you go to NASCAR racer in NASCAR fan you'll see safety playing all over the place.
We deal with 65.
Tracks across North America and and 265.
Different racing teams so and we've been doing this for a long -- business overall -- -- Business getting better with the economy down obviously -- a microcosm.
Our company is a microcosm of -- the environment generally but.
Last year we had a record here at safety plane and with the green eco consciousness.
That's now starting to take hold and in North America.
We're very excited about the future.
Laying a lot of environmentalists that they don't like companies like you're there don't like anything it has to do it engines -- oil our cars but but they shouldn't they like anyone -- my -- you know horse well windmill powered horses -- We take we take use oil as an example and it's.
We can serve that scarce resource it takes less energy to -- refine that oil you can -- -- it infinitely.
That if you check crude oil and refined -- the first time 85% less energy.
So not only do we can serve -- scarce resource we conserve energy.
And we recycle.
So if you could we use.
Materials like don't let it go to waste exactly.
And I just thank good common sense and everything that we do -- -- -- wings -- -- But for -- -- young president's safety -- -- -- a pleasure thank you much good luck with the addition thank you thanks for joining us today and I good 2000.
