Renewable Lubricants, Inc. began in 1991 as a research and development company. From the beginning, we wanted make high performance products that would directly replace conventional petroleum products. We wanted to limit our need of foreign oil and preserve the natural resource of petroleum for applications that require it. Starting with the development of corn-based engine oil made in an inventors garage, we now offer over 250 products with over 100 patents worldwide. The development of these products has continued with grants from the United Soybean Board, the United Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Department of Defense (DOD), along with support from Lubrizol and Dow AgroSciences.
Renewable Lubricants has been government grants, contracts and/or working agreements with:
- Department of Defense, Department of Interior, Department of Energy, Department of Agriculture, Concurrent Technology Corporation, United Soybean Board, Dow AgroSciences, Lubrizol, Ohio Soybean Council, National and Ohio Corn Growers Associations, Penn State University, University of Lincoln Nebraska, and Chevron Phillips Chemical
In December 2013 the US Environment Protection Agency’s (EPA) Vessel General Permit (VGP) came into effect. The revised legislation introduces new environmental regulations for vessels operating in US coastal waters and Great Lakes. The legislation states that environmentally acceptable lubricants* (EAL) must be used in all oil-to-sea interfaces on vessels. Renewable Lubricants™ has developed a full product line to meet these new requirements set by the EPA as Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs). We are also proud to be a part of the USDA BioPreferred program. All of these organizations and regulations have contributed to the preservation of our natural resources worldwide.
We believe Earth's environmental future rests in the use of renewable materials.
