For many industries, there are strong arguments for use of biodegradable lubricants derived from crop-based renewable resources in ecologically sensitive applications. Such arguments are important where pollution of soil and water by conventional mineral oils may cause problems to plants, animals and the environment.

FUCHS now offers bio lubricants for a host of applications where previously mineral oils were used.

The list includes: Metalworking and the manufacturing industries, quarrying and mining, and railways.

Formulations have been developed, trialled and put into service for almost all lubricant applications.

Advantages claimed include: High load carrying abilities, good anti-wear character, excellent Coefficient of Friction, low toxicity, natural multigrade properties, low evaporation rates - low emissions to atmosphere, and rapid biodegradability.
