Launch of Biodegradable Lubricants

Press Release
Wednesday, December 19, 2012

High Performance Biodegradable Hydraulic Meets Waterjet Requirements.



Terresolve Technologies, an industry leader in producing environmentally safe lubricants and functional fluids, and Jackson Offshore Operators, a marine services company supporting the offshore oil and gas industry today, announced that Jackson will be outfitting their Jet Drive Fast Crew/Supply boats with Terresolve’s EnviroLogic 3046 product.



EnviroLogic 3046 is a high-performance biodegradable hydraulic fluid and is specially designed to perform in applications where incidental environmental exposure of the lubricant is a cause for concern. The fluid is readily biodegradable, meaning it will break down into natural parts within 28 days in accordance with the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) ultimate biodegradation test. In addition, it meets all major hydraulic fluid performance specifications, making them a direct replacement for their petroleum analogues.



“One of our core values is to protect our people and the environment” says Lee Jackson, President and CEO of Jackson Offshore. “We were pleased to hear that Terresolve offers environmentally acceptable alternatives, but were unsure if they could meet our high performance standards. HamiltonJet – the makers of the waterjets – let us know that Terresolve’s EnviroLogic 3046 more than met its expectations, and after that it was a ‘green’ light all the way.”



“We are always trying to raise the bar of performance, and this is a testament to our incredible R&D team,” said Terresolve CEO, Mark Miller.  “Our customers are constantly seeking environmentally safe fluids and greases that are able to perform in exceptionally harsh conditions, like offshore operations.”



Terresolve’s EnviroLogic 3046 is superior to other eco-friendly products. EnviroLogic is a synthetic-based fluid that falls into the ISO 6743 Environmental Hydraulic Fluids Classification ‘HEPR’ category which is poly-alpha olefin and related products and offers significantly improved performance. Most other biofluids use synthetic ester (HEES) technology, which is susceptible to oxidation and hydrolysis, meaning it can break down if it gets wet.



While Jackson is little less than two years old, our modern fleet is designed for deepwater operations and we are meeting the demanding requirements of the offshore oil and gas industry.



For almost twenty years, Terresolve has provided various industries with environmentally safe alternatives to petroleum products. As more companies explore environmentally preferable products for a variety of applications, operators can trust in Terresolve’s products, which protect the environment and are proven to perform as well or better than the toxic oils and lubricants on the market.
