BIOMAX™ helps ship owners meet EAL requirements while exceeding industry performance
Athens, Greece, June 9, 2022. Biodegradable, biorenewable, environmentally acceptable lubricants that are non-toxic and eco-friendly often don’t provide the same level of performance as traditional industrial lubricants. This leads to increased drydocking time, and a higher total cost of ownership.
To solve this performance gap challenge, the research and development team for the Royal Purple® brand worked for more than a decade to find a solution. The result is BIOMAX™ Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs) which are now revolutionizing the shipping industry. The key difference in BIOMAX™ is the Royal Purple brand proprietary composition of synthetic molecules that are biodegradable, biorenewable, non-toxic or bioaccumulative. These superior technologies are sustainable, and environmentally responsive with unsurpassed performance and protection for a multitude of applications.
“Our Royal Purple brand is devoted to developing synthetic lubricant solutions that advance the maritime industry,” said Rusty Waples, Director of Brand and Product Management for Calumet’s Performance Brands division. “The Royal Purple BIOMAX™ Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EAL) offer uncompromised performance while still meeting and exceeding stringent European-Ecolabel, US, EPA, VGP/VIDA, and requirements.”
