We’re Committed to the Environment

We prioritize environmental sustainability across the entire life cycle of our products and the manufacturing processes we use to make them.

Our Sustainability Initiatives:


Collection Programs

Engine oil and oil filters and have the shortest replacement cycles of any of the filters in a car’s engine. Plans are in place to assist any HK® Distributor with setting up the resources needed to receive used oil filters and properly stored, used oil, then coordinate recycling and reselling of the materials for sustainable remanufacturing.


End of Life Rewards

Distributors enjoy the opportunity to benefit financially as used motor oil can be resold to refineries for reprocessing. Properly stored end of life oil may be sold directly to home heating oil companies for refining and resale.


Reprocessing Opportunities

Used oil filters may be sold to approved recycling facilities that are equipped to reprocess and recycle components so that they may serve as new consumer products.

GO GREEN with our Filters

Protecting the environment is part of our corporate DNA and a competitive differentiator for all of our Universe Filter clients and HK® filter distributors. Since our founding in 1991, having an eco-conscious commitment has drastically reduced the potential impact our products have on our planet.
