Press Release: EU Ecolabel LuSC-List Approves VBASE 68SLV
March 30, 2022 (Pendleton, SC, USA) – VBASE® Oil Company is pleased to announce our base oil has been added to the LuSC-list, indicating it is safe for the environment. We received the Letter of Compliance from the Netherlands Competent Body: SMK confirming the addition of our high performance and environmentally friendly base oil, VBASE 68SLV, to the EU Ecolabel Lubricant Substance Classification list (LuSC-list). View the current LuSC-list here.
For an oil or additive to be included on the EU Ecolabel LuSC-list, it must be safe for the environment – passing third party testing to meet strict biocontent, biodegradation, bioaccumulation, and sustainability requirements. Inclusion on the LuSC-list is critical for environmentally friendly lubricant components. Lubricant formulators select LuSC-list approved components for use in their finished lubricant products in order for them to be considered Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs) and meet Vessel Incidental Discharge Act (VIDA) requirements.
“VBASE base oils create new performance capabilities that we are excited to share. Everyone tends to think of base oils as old technology, but it is, in fact, a constantly evolving industry working to meet the needs of new applications and new performance requirements. We are excited that a wide variety of industries can benefit from high performance and sustainable VBASE base oils.”
