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

VBASE Base Oils Enable Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants
VBASE® base 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® base oils are biobased (renewable carbon >50%), are readily biodegradable (>60% by OECD 301B), non-toxic (OECD 201, OECD 202, OECD 203, OECD 236), and non-bioaccumulating (OECD 117).

In addition, VBASE base oils are NSF HX-1 and thus suitable for formulation of H1 lubricants for use in and around food processing areas. VBASE 68SLV has been certified EU Ecolabel LuSC List and other base oil certifications are anticipated in the coming months.
