RSC Bio Solutions Creates Big Waves with New Product Announcement

Maritime Activity Reports, Inc.

September 6, 2016

RSC Bio Solutions, a global leader in environmentally acceptable lubricants (EALs) and cleaners, announced the launch of FUTERRA™, a new revolutionary product line of bio-based lubricants.  The only hydrocarbon renewable EAL derived from a plant-based material, FUTERRA was designed to outperform other products on the market while meeting the most stringent global environmental regulations at a more attractive price point.

FUTERRA offers superior performance in both wet and dry environments, holds up to extreme conditions in contact with water in high-pressure and extreme temperatures and has higher durability compared to other EALs, which results in greater system efficiency, fewer change-outs and extended equipment life.  Additionally, FUTERRA offers ultimate system and seal compatibility and is miscible with legacy fluids, so it does not disrupt operations schedules, increasing system uptime and efficiency. In fact, it is the only EAL from a renewable hydrocarbon resource and is a drop-in replacement for mineral oil- or petroleum-based lubricants. Finally, as an Ecolabel-certified product, FUTERRA is suitable for use anywhere in the world, giving marine companies the ultimate route and equipment flexibility.

“FUTERRA is the clear choice for risk mitigation in sensitive areas without sacrificing performance, quality or cost-effectiveness,” said Mike Guggenheimer, president and CEO, RSC Bio Solutions. “We believe that forward-looking and operationally efficient ship management teams will be keenly interested in this new technology as they anticipate future trends.”

FUTERRA is the strongest performing bio-based lubricant currently available on the market. This lubricant can last 3 to 4 times longer against other EALs and thus allows operators to significantly increase the time interval between change-outs. FUTERRA offers the only 10-year performance guarantee in the industry, with some restrictions, for stern tube applications.

“FUTERRA is truly a breakthrough in our industry,” said Dr. Bernie Roell, vice president of research & development, at RSC Bio Solutions. “It outperforms all other EALs currently on the market, meets OEM specifications and is the new standard for EALs in the marine industry.”
