Enabling the electrical industry to go circular

Sustainable development is now a high priority in most industries. With the launch of NYTRO RR 900X, Nynas is contributing to resource efficiency and helping utility companies and OEMs contribute to greenhouse gas reduction targets.

NYTRO RR 900X contributes to raw material efficiency by reusing end-of-life transformer fluid. The Nynas re-refining process recovers valuable molecules that no longer fit for service in their present form, making the best use of the fluid’s original production impact.

NYTRO RR 900X is suitable for use in a wide range of electrical applications, including high voltage power transformers. The new grade complies to the highest requirements in the IEC 60296 standard, which further requires the feedstock of re-refined fluids to be sourced 100 per cent from electrical equipment.

Nynas’ modern optimised hydrotreating technology has resulted in top-of-the range specifications that equal those of virgin oils. The quality and characteristics of NYTRO RR 900X are equal, if not superior to, those of the NYTRO high performing grades, retaining the well-known dielectric behaviour of traditional naphthenic dielectric fluids.

At a 100 per cent recycling rate over its lifetime, NYTRO RR 900X produces a reduction of at least 70 per cent in greenhouse gas emissions compared to a virgin transformer oil as well as an overall reduction in crude consumption. “We are very proud to contribute to the reduced environmental footprint of transformer oil production,” says Marika Rangstedt, Sustainability Manager at Nynas.
