We understand that navigating the regulatory changes underpinning the marine industry can be challenging. Meeting performance requirements and regulatory targets can prove difficult. Customers require protection and long service life of key pieces of equipment and need to be safe in the knowledge that the lubricant is going to provide trouble free operation.  As lubricants and fuels constitute some of the biggest losses to the marine environment, the boundary between the oil and sea interface is under continuous scrutiny by regulatory authorities and customers must now develop solutions that have an acceptable environmental profile. This is evidenced in the introduction of the Vessel General Permit (VGP) legislation in December 2013 as well as the European Ecolabel scheme.  

We have a range of technologies which allow formulators to create products that meet the requirements of VGP and provide protection and performance in applications including hydraulics, greases, gears and stern tubes.
