BioBlend’s marine-approved products pass additional certifications based on the lubricant needs of the marine industry. BioBlend formulate each VGP compliant marine product to meet the EPA’s EAL requirements without sacrificing performance or cost.
VGP Compliant Lubricants Without Compromise
In 2013, the EPA issued its revised Vessel General Permit mandating the use of Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs) in all oil-to-water interfaces on merchant vessels 79 feet or longer. Since then, a major problem within the marine industry has been finding VGP compliant EALs effective enough to use regularly without harming ship equipment.
BioBlend’s proprietary process allows our experts to formulate readily biodegradable EALs, oils, and greases that meet both the EPA’s mandates AND your company’s needs. Our biodegradable products aren’t just environmentally responsible and fully VGP compliant; they’re also effective, performing as well as or better than their conventional counterparts.
What Does bioblend Mean for the Marine Industry?
BioBlend’s marine-approved products pass additional certifications based on the lubricant needs of the marine industry. These products meet EPA requirements to be classified as EALs per the 2013 Vessel General Permit (VGP), making them fully VGP compliant. They are also readily biodegradable, minimally or non-toxic, and confirmed water-safe for usage on boat equipment.
Each product category, from our VGP compliant lubricants to our VGP oils and EAL greases is rigorously tested to ensure they perform as effectively if not more effectively than any traditional petroleum-based or synthetic counterpart for all marine applications.
