Lexolube Synthetic Esters Added to EU Ecolabel List

Noria news wires

Zschimmer & Schwarz recently announced the addition of several of its Lexolube products to the European Union (EU) Ecolabel Lubricant Substance Classification (LuSC) list. Based on the updated 2019 criteria, the synthetic ester products added to the list were Lexolube 3G-310, 3N-310, 3Q-310, 4N-415, B-109, FG-22 HX1, CLG-460, CG-3000 and CQ-3000.

The EU Ecolabel identifies products that have a reduced environmental impact throughout their life cycle, from the extraction of raw material to production, use and disposal. The LuSC list comprises lubricant substances that meet stringent biodegradation, bioaccumulation, aquatic toxicity and sustainability requirements.

By using LuSC list components, formulators can ensure their finished lubricant products meet EU Ecolabel criteria, minimizing the registration timeline and associated expenses. For Vessel General Permit (VGP) purposes, products formulated from EU Ecolabel substances are considered environmentally acceptable lubricants (EALs).

“The addition of these products to the LuSC list continues to demonstrate that Zschimmer & Schwarz is committed to providing safe and sustainable products to our global customer base,” said Doug Placek, global director of the lubricants division at Zschimmer & Schwarz. “These additions build upon our existing certifications to further enhance the Zschimmer & Schwarz portfolio, including food-safe and environmentally preferred Lexolube products.”
