With an ever widening spectrum of eco-friendly products from Olympus Green to BioTuff, SCL has what you need
If you’re a business owner, organization or governmental agency operating within the state of California, you’re most likely no stranger to the stringent environmental regulations that many industries face. Whether you’re in the automotive industry, shipping, manufacturing, aviation or the public sector – operating police cars, fire trucks, busses or trains – you’re no doubt familiar with having to navigate federal, state, county, and city environmental mandates. Government agencies are typically mandated to have a percentage of their product inventory either re-refined or an industry by-product, so there is the NEED to be more environmentally compliant, and there is also a growing desire for companies that simply WANT to expand upon environmentally positive products and practices. In this article we explore the SCL in-house Green Leaf portfolio options and how they can fulfill environmental regulations while simultaneously saving you money.
Olympus Green Leaf Portfolio Products
Olympus Green is our private SCL branded version of environmental product offerings that include motor oils, hydraulic oils and our Olympus Blue DEF. Olympus products provide a cost effective alternative for our customers and are formulated from a biodegradable base stock that is the same as major branded oils without the expensive premiums typically associated with them. Expanding the Olympus line of green products is a work in progress, and over time we hope to continue developing a robust Green Leaf portfolio that includes more biodegradable and environmentally compliant product alternatives. Our Olympus Blue DEF is a non-hazardous solution consisting of 32.5% urea and 67.5% de-ionized water that breaks down NOx emissions into harmless nitrogen and water when sprayed into a diesel engine’s exhaust stream.
BIOTUFF or BIOTUFF Low VOC multipurpose cleaner and degreaser by Green Mountain Corporation is an environmentally sound cleaning and degreasing alternative that is biodegradable and non-toxic. Safe to use on any surface, BioTuff will save your business time and money as a go-to cleaning and degreasing concentrate. With their fully biodegradable green cleaning solutions, BIOTUFF is non-toxic, water-soluble, non-flammable and contains zero harsh alkalis or harmful acids. It’s effective and environmentally safe in and around both salt and freshwater environments and the formulation of BIOTUFF’s Low VOC cleaner/degreaser meets many of California’s stringent emissions standards. Instead of maintaining an arsenal of cleaning supplies to accommodate the different needs of your business, cover all of your bases with all-purpose, concentrated and biodegradable BIOTUFF and BIOTUFF VOC.
Chevron Clarity Hydraulic Oils and Synthetic EA Lubricants
Chevron’s Clarity® Hydraulic Oils AW and Clarity® Synthetic EA Lubricants were created to provide excellent protection in a variety of pumps – hydraulic vane, piston, and gear-type, as well as in high performance industrial applications. Designed for compliance in environmentally sensitive areas, Chevron Clarity® Hydraulic Oil AW 32, 46, 68, 100 have also shown excellent performance in applications involving servo-valves using multi-metal components. Clarity® Synthetic EA Lubricants are designed to give maximum protection in industrial gear and hydraulic equipment used on vessels and in environmentally sensitive areas. They are readily biodegradable, high performance oils that meet EPA Vessel General Permit (VGP) requirements for environmentally acceptable lubricants. In environmentally sensitive areas where protection from leaks and spills of hydraulic fluid is essential, such as near coastlines, rivers, creeks and lakes, Chevron Clarity® is a solid alternative. Inherently biodegradable, Clarity® has low acute water toxicity to both fish and invertebrates, and its ashless formulation is compatible with conventional recycling programs.
Currently Available EALs from Chevron:
- Clarity® Synthetic EA Hydraulic Oil 46
- Clarity® Synthetic EA Hydraulic Oil 68
- Clarity® Synthetic EA Hydraulic Oil 100
- Clarity® Synthetic EA Gear Oil 100
- Clarity® Synthetic EA Gear Oil 150
Phillips 66 Sheild® Firebird
Phillips 66 Sheild® Firebird is a synthetic blend passenger car engine oil that is formulated with 70% or greater re-refined base stock oils. It is an environmentally compliant, partially synthetic automotive engine oil that was created to deliver optimal engine protection for turbocharged gasoline direct-injection, conventional gasoline-fueled and flex-fueled passenger cars, as well as light trucks under all operating conditions. Formulated with a blend of synthetic oil and 70% or greater high-quality re-refined base stock oils, Sheild® lessens the environmental impact of conventional oils because the use of re-refined base stocks decrease the disposal of used oil.
