Functional Products Inc. provides biobased and ecofriendly additives for Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EAL) via the European Ecolabel‘s Lubricant Substance Classification (LuSC) list. European Ecolabel is one Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant (EAL) program that may be used to streamline registration for Vessel General Permit (VGP) for lubricants and greases on ships and waterways.
The LuSC list as of October 9th 2020 is available here and contains all white-listed components and packages. Newly registered products may take some time to appear on the list but are valid – contact us for the most recent LuSC status.
For more information on exact formulation and performance requirements, consult the User Manual for EU Ecolabel Lubricants. Treat levels are dependent on the properties of the additive, application, and likelihood of loss to the environment.
