Multisol to distribute Novvi’s renewable base oils in Europe
Novvi LLC and Multisol Ltd, a subsidiary of Brenntag SE within the Brenntag Lubricants EMEA Business Unit, have begun a European distribution partnership to promote Novvi’s platform of ultra-high performance base oils manufactured entirely from renewable plant oils.
“We are delighted that Brenntag Lubricants EMEA has joined the team to promote SynNova to solve difficult challenges facing the lubricant industry. Whether it is a demanding OEM requirement or a corporate objective to reduce carbon emissions, Novvi can facilitate the transition to new thresholds of performance and the carbon neutrality requirements of tomorrow,” said Jeff Brown, CEO of Novvi.
Novvi LLC manufactures SynNova® base oils in LaPorte, Texas, U.S.A., with proprietary technology using plant oil feedstocks. SynNova delivers ultra-low volatility, together with exceptional CCS performance and viscosity index for a robust performance to enable low-viscosity motor oil grades.
These base oils are designed to meet today’s requirements as well as facilitate next-generation OEM specifications, lower carbon footprints to meet regulations and deliver carbon neutrality targets, as well as provide cost-effective formulations.
Base Oils Account Director for Multisol-Brenntag Lubricants EMEA, Paul Kerwin, stated that future lubricant technology will increasingly rely on materials with lower-carbon credentials and enhanced performance at ultra-low viscosity. SynNova base oils are well placed to meet these requirements, he said.
David Hopkinson, president of Brenntag Lubricants EMEA, commented that the addition of SynNova base oils into the portfolio will enhance the exceptionally strong lower-carbon credentials of the Brenntag Lubricants EMEA Business Unit which are already well supported through its partnership with Chevron and Neste and the access to resource-efficient technologies from Infineum and Evonik. It also builds on successes that Brenntag Lubricants has had with Novvi in the U.S., through its business unit formerly known as J.A.M. Distributing.
SynNova products are now available across Europe from Brenntag Lubricants EMEA, including the various Multisol entities.
