ENOC Group launches eco-friendly marine lubricants
ENOC Group has rolled out a series of environmentally acceptable lubricants (EALs) tailored for marine vessels. This initiative is poised to bolster the maritime sector’s carbon reduction endeavors both locally and on a global scale. Moreover, these products have earned the EU EcoLabel certification.
In response to the dynamic regulatory environment, ENOC’s latest marine lubricant offerings encompass stern tube oils, hydraulic oils, gear oils, and greases. These products align with the EPA’s 2013 Vessel General Permit (VGP) standards, which aim to curb harmful lubricant discharges, and the Vessel Incidental Discharge Act (VIDA), a regulatory framework by the U.S. EPA overseeing incidental discharges from commercial ships.
“With the maritime sector striving towards its 2050 Net Zero goal, EALs are pivotal in minimising environmental footprints, especially since a significant portion of lubricants from vessels directly enters water bodies. Our EALs not only resonate with the upcoming COP28 event but also align with ENOC’s longstanding commitment to environmental conservation. These lubricants promise marine operators both environmental sustainability and peak performance,” said Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO of ENOC.
The headquarters of ENOC Group (Emirates National Oil Company) is located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Building on its sustainability drive, ENOC Group has set its sights on broadening its marine lubricant sales to encompass more than 300 ports by 2025.
