On December 19th 2013 the new ‘United States Environment Protection Agency Vessel General Permit (VGP)’ came into effect, and sees new restrictions placed on the use and discharge of lubricants used on board commercial vessels which operate in US coastal waters.
The VGP provides guidance on three levels for lubricants:
This presentation will discuss in detail the VGP definition of an environmentally acceptable lubricant and will also compare and contrast the other eco-label schemes by which lubricants can be accredited and are also accepted for use under VGP.
This presentation will also provide an overview of the types of base fluids that are permitted to be used, focussing on the general characteristics of each type of base fluid.
