In 2013, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) launched the Vessel General Permit, obligating all vessels above 79 feet in length to use environmentally acceptable lubricants (EAL) for oi-sea interface applications. The new legislation was broad to live to reduce the pollution of the oceans and seas and is as well encouraged for above deck equipment. In 2014, the EPA issued a separate Small Vessel General Permit for vessels below 79 feet in length, to control for incidental spills and leaks.
 
The VGP legislation will continue to have a strong impact on the global marine industry. To support the market in these challenges, Oleon developed a broad range of ester base oils, which are ideal EAL candidates:
  • Biodegradable
  • Minimally toxic
  • Not-bioaccumulative
 
More than 30 Radialube® Esters are listed on the LuSC-list for Ecolabel formulation and many more are eligible to respond to future developments.
