The use of regenerated lubricant oils is still a sensible theme in the current economical context. The object of this thesis is the analysis of the technical, economic and environmental potential of the use of regenerated lubricant oils in the national industry. It is intended to analyze and show the potential gains of the industrial and technological development in this sector, while identifying the opportunities in the national market for the production and exportation of regenerated lubricant oils. Therefore, based on an extensive bibliographic research and the collection of data, three scenarios where proposed. The first scenario is about the exclusive use of new lubricant oils, produced nationally using non-renewable resources. In the second scenario, the use of only regenerated lubricant oils is simulated and finally, the third scenario aims to test the phased deployment of regenerated lubricant oil in the national industry. The analysis and comparison of this scenarios took into account adequate indicators based on the industrial reality. After the discussion of the results of the analysis, it was proved that it is possible to combine sustainable innovation with wealth generation and environmental preservation. This is a major contribution to the creation of eco-efficient companies that maintain or even increase production using less resources, emitting less and with less waste, using alternative raw materials and clean technologies aimed for efficiency
