3. Where vessels utilize two stroke engines, EALs must be used unless technically infeasible.
The VGP defines environmentally acceptable lubricants as lubricants that are ‘Biodegradable’, ‘Minimally-toxic’ and ‘Not Bioaccumulative’.
are acceptable for use in VGP marine applications, even though the criteria used to define an environmentally acceptable lubricant under these schemes differ from the VGP definition.
We have a long and distinguished history in the development of base oils for all major ecolabel schemes around the world. The selection of base oils should be dependent on the viscosity and oxidation stability requirements for your specific marine application. If your specific requirements are not able to be met with our standard range of products, please contact us and we will endeavour to meet your requirements, either by selecting products from our extended product range, or through new product development.
