Environmentally Acceptable (EAL) & Biodegradable Lubricants

Environmentally responsible companies looking to fulfill regulatory requirements while promoting environmental stewardship, sustainability and “greener” applications are partnering with FUCHS to address the rising demand for safer, high performance lubricants.

FUCHS’ EAL and Biodegradable Lubricants have been developed to meet regulatory requirements for applications in sensitive ecological environments such as waterways or forests.

Every lubricant change should be preceded by expert consultation on the application in question. Only then the best lubricant system can be selected.

Experienced FUCHS sales and technical personnel will be glad to advise on products and process optimization for the application in question.
