Get ahead of the flow and go pro-environmental today

  • Switching from mineral oils to polyol ester (POE) base oils for synthetic lubricant formulations is already a safer and better environmental (biodegradable) choice. This is something that both OEMs and synthetic lubricant producers can easily do today if they want to improve their sustainability profile
  • Perstorp is launching a new range of high-performance renewable and part renewable polyols for base oils that make the switch to polyol ester oils even more compelling from a sustainability perspective

Switching from mineral oils to polyol ester base oils using a new generation of Pro-Environment Polyols can significantly reduce the cradle-to-grave environmental impact of synthetic lubricants. Perstorp’s renewable Penta, marketed as Voxtar™, for example, reduce the carbon footprint by up to 80%.

Recently launched the new Perstorp range of Pro-Environment Polyols (PEP) includes renewable and part-renewable grades of Penta, TMP and NEO under the product brands Voxtar, Evyron™ and Neeture™. As drop-in solutions, they can directly make a positive environmental impact on polyol ester base oils.

Products that use synthetic lubricants, such as cars, planes, transformers and refrigerators must already comply with stiff environmental and safety regulations. However, the new Perstorp Pro-Environment Polyols represent a major opportunity for lubricant formulators and OEMs to get ahead of the pack and considerably sharpen their sustainability profile.

Growing consumer maturity and demand for pro-environmental solutions

Growing consumer advocacy and demand for greater sustainability is a growing global trend. With a watchful public, it is more important than ever that companies make and take the right environmental choices whenever viable opportunities arise. Perstorp’s new Pro-Environment Polyols represent a clear environmental opportunity with no commercial downside. OEMs and producers opting for synthetic lubricant formulations using the new generation of Pro-Environment Polyols will also gain a fast and sustainable marketing advantage. Taking up that option is good for brands, consumers and the planet.

Dual efficiency: no compromise between performance and environment

Primarily, performance efficiency is the key driver for machinery and motors in the selection of synthetic lubricants, but now you can have your cake and eat it. By switching to Pro-Environment Polyols lubricants can be formulated to give uncompromising and precise technical performance with the benefit of a much lower carbon footprint.

“Polyol esters are already a great choice for synthetic lubricants as they not only come with high-performance efficiency, but they are also safe and biodegradable.” Says Andreas Nilsson, Market Segment Manager for Synthetic Lubricants at Perstorp. He continues: “Now that choice has become even better. By using our new Pro-Environment Polyols, you can shrink your carbon footprint and ensure engines continue to contribute to a lower environmental impact throughout their operational life.”

Easy to switch to and customers get priority

There is little effort required in switching from fossil-based polyols to renewable polyols as they are identical molecules. Customers who “sign-up” will get supply priority, as Perstorp is keen to help customers to go pro-environmental. Perstorp’s renewable and part renewable polyols are all ISCC (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification) certified under the Mass Balance concept, which confirms sustainable sourcing and the contribution towards CO2 reduction of the certified molecules.

Perstorp extending their pro-environment polyol advantage

As the leading supplier of base polyols to the lubricant market, Perstorp is extending its environmental lead with the introduction of Pro-Environment Polyols too. The company currently devotes 80% of its R&D resources to finding innovative sustainable solutions, and all its Swedish plants are running solely only renewable electricity.

Andreas Nilsson concludes: “Perstorp is keen to ensure the responsible sourcing of renewable raw materials, using only renewable electricity in processing and that our products contribute to greater sustainability. We’re committed to helping our customers in the lubricant value chain to reach their environmental goals wherever we can, and we believe our new Pro-Environment Polyols are another important step to helping them achieve those goals.”

Voxtar™, Evyron™ & Neeture™ is the property of the Perstorp Group and can be subject to registration in many countries.

Perstorp was the first to introduce Pro-Environment Polyols (Voxtar™) and has a strong portfolio of acids for synthetic lubricants. The company is now extending its market lead with the introduction of several new pro-environment grades for POE and lubricant producers. With no loss in efficiency, safety or other performance criteria these pro-environment polyols give POE formulators an instant opportunity to sharpen their sustainability profile. This major environmental advantage can then be passed onto customers and through the lubricant value chain helping to differentiate lubricants towards consumers.

Recently launched the new Perstorp range of Pro-Environment Polyols includes renewable and part renewable grades of Penta, TMP and Neo under the product brands Voxtar, Evyron™ and Neeture™. As drop-in solutions, they immediately make a sustainable impact on polyol ester base oils achieving significant environmental savings, on top of the opportunity to make the switch away from fossil-based mineral oils. Perstorp is keen to support POE producers to go the route of pro-environment polyols by offering support in fine-tuning formulations that are engineered to meet specific performance criteria.

Andreas Nilsson, Market Segment Manager for Synthetic Lubricants at Perstorp highlights: “Perstorp already has the largest portfolio of polyols for synthetic lubricants. The addition of our new Pro-Environment Polyols gives POE producers the opportunity to improve their sustainability profile overnight”.

Making a sustainable difference

Converting fossil based polyols to renewable polyols can and will make a significant difference to our planet. The potential to reduce the carbon footprint of the polyol part of POEs by up to 80% makes a substantial contribution to POE and lubricant producers’ sustainability profiles. Consumer pressure and OEMs desire to sharpen their environmental profile means that POE formulators can now differentiate their products environmentally as well as on performance. Switching to pro-environment polyols is good for business, and good for the planet.

Switching to certified renewables is easy

Perstorp’s renewable and part renewable polyols are all ISCC (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification) certified under the Mass Balance concept, which confirms sustainable sourcing and the contribution towards CO2 reduction of the certified molecules. Since the new Pro-Environment Polyols – Voxtar, Evyron and Neeture – are chemically identical to existing fossil-based Penta, TMP and Neo, switching is easy and risk-free. In effect, POE producers can drop-in the pro-environment polyols but with the advantage of achieving a much lower carbon footprint.

Partnering for a more sustainable future

Perstorp currently devotes 80 % of its R&D resources to finding innovative sustainable solutions, and all its Swedish plants will be running solely on renewable electricity in 2018. The new Pro-Environment Polyols are part of the company’s “we only have one planet” initiative as expressed by Jan Secher, CEO Perstorp Group: “Perstorp’s new pro-environment portfolio is a great example of how we intend to work towards our ambition to become Finite Material Neutral. It is a tough ambition, but we have to do it. There is no plan B because we only have one planet.”

The company is committed to helping POE producers develop fine-tuned solutions for their different synthetic lubricant demands and challenges. Through this, the company hopes to speed up the adoption of Pro-Environment Polyols and improve the environmental footprint throughout the synthetic lubricant value chain.
