Sustainability and circular economy

The desire for sustainable solutions has never been greater, but sustainability is about more than just being safe for our environment. By developing VBASE® oils with improved efficiency and greater stability, oil lifetimes are extended and waste reduced. In addition, sustainable oils reduce fuel consumption and emissions by increasing overall equipment efficiency. At the end of oil life, VBASE® plans to work with our customers to bring used oil back for reconditioning, repurposing, or remanufacturing.

As VBASE® grows, it is our goal to develop a supply chain that minimizes environmental impacts of transportation and distribution while maximizing positive effects on local economies by manufacturing in region and sourcing local natural feedstocks.

Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs)

Biobased | Biodegradable | Non-Toxic | Non-Bioaccumulating

VBASE® oils deliver the highest performance and greatest energy savings without compromising our environment. This new family of products enables the use of environmentally acceptable lubricants (EALs) in many environmentally sensitive areas such as hydropower plants, agricultural & forestry equipment, and marine environments.

VBASE® lubricants have high inclusion of renewable carbon (>50%), are biodegradable (>60% by OECD 301B), non-toxic (OECD 201, OECD 202, OECD 203, OECD 236), and do not bioaccumulate (OECD 117).

Added to EU Ecolabel LuSC-list (VBASE 68SLV - March 2022). View the press release and further information HERE.

All Performance.

No Compromise.
