Biolubricants: Environment protection and effectiveness
TOTAL is highly sensitive to environment protection and sustainable development. TOTAL has therefore developed a range of bio-lubricants designed in priority for activities where there is a direct risk for the environment if there is a leak or accidental loss of the product.
What is a biolubricant ?
Bio-lubricant sectors of application
Bio-lubricants must be used in priority for all applications where there is an environmental risk.
This applies to:
Some environments for which environmental protection is a permanent preoccupation are particularly concerned by the use of bio-lubricants. This is the case for aquatic, mountain, agricultural and forest environments in particular.

What is the Eco-label ?
There are several eco-labels which are designed to differentiate these products from existing conventional lubricants. The European Eco-label published in 2005 is the most unifying and Total has chosen to apply it to its products. This European Eco-label, for which the symbol is a daisy, can only be used on products which satisfy strict criteria as regards their low environmental impact.
It is one of those rare labels which provides a guarantee of performance and can be used to distinguish an ordinary biodegradable oil from a proper Bio-lubricant.
