Zschimmer & Schwarz adds synthetic esters to European Ecolabel LuSC-list

Zschimmer & Schwarz is pleased to announce the addition of the following LEXOLUBE® products to the EU Ecolabel Lubricant Substance Classification list (LuSC-list) based on the updated 2019 criteria:

LEXOLUBE® 3G-310

LEXOLUBE® 3N-310

LEXOLUBE® 3Q-310

LEXOLUBE® 4N-415

LEXOLUBE® B-109

LEXOLUBE® FG-22 HX1

LEXOLUBE® CLG-460

LEXOLUBE® CG-3000

LEXOLUBE® CQ-3000

The EU Ecolabel identifies products that have a reduced environmental impact throughout their life cycle, from the extraction of raw material to production, use and disposal. The LuSC-list comprises lubricant substances that meet stringent biodegradation, bioaccumulation, aquatic toxicity, and sustainability requirements. By using LuSC-list components, formulators can ensure that their finished lubricant products meet EU Ecolabel criteria, minimizing the registration timeline and associated expenses. For VGP purposes, products formulated from EU Ecolabel substances are considered Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs), which are required by the current US Vessel General Permit (VGP). 

“The addition of these products to the LuSC-list continues to demonstrate that Zschimmer & Schwarz is committed to providing safe and sustainable products to our global customer base,” said Doug Placek, Global Director Lubricants Division. “These additions build upon our existing certifications to further enhance the Zschimmer & Schwarz portfolio including food-safe and environmentally preferred LEXOLUBE® products.”
