The U.S. EPA’s 2013 Vessel General Permit (VGP) requirements are now in place, requiring the use of environmentally acceptable lubricants (EALs) in oil to water interfaces for vessels over 79 feet. The VGP revision also requires any above water line hull cleaning or deck washdowns resulting in discharge to be conducted with appropriate cleaners and detergents.

A webinar, Complying with New EPA Lubricant, Cleaner Requirements for Marine, Offshore Industries, will be held on Thursday, June 12, 2014 at 2-3:15 p.m. EDT to help clarify the VGP EAL rules and requirements.

Hosted by RSC Bio Solutions along with Maritime Reporter and Engineering News, MarineLink.com and Marine News, the webinar will explain the 2013 VGP EAL regulations and the impact they have on marine transportation, offshore oil and gas and marine construction operators. The webinar will also outline a “no worries” path to compliance for operators by using tested, approved and technically feasible EALs across a broad range of equipment and component applications.

RSC Bio Solutions offers the EnviroLogic 3000 Series of Ultra-High Performance Readily Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluids that are EAL certified and compliant with the 2013 EPA VGP requirements.

The EnviroLogic 3000 Series consists of readily biodegradable synthetic hydraulic fluids designed for extreme operating temperatures and pressures. Because they’re formulated to provide exceptional oxidation and thermal properties, these products are suited for mobile or marine hydraulic and propulsion systems operating in environmentally sensitive areas. According to RSC Bio Solutions, the hydraulic fluids can withstand temperatures as high as 250°F or as low as -40°F, and they can handle pressure as great as 5,000+ psi. Plus, when compared to conventional, petroleum based hydraulic oils, the EnviroLogic 3000 Series offers superior wear protection and long changeover intervals, the manufacturer said.

EnviroLogic 3000 Series is 2013 EPA VGP Compliant, non-sheening, certified as an Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant (EAL) and readily biodegradable (biodegrades ≥ 60% within 28 days).
