Our oceans are not only the world’s highways for raw materials, goods and people, they are vital to the health of the planet. The marine industry has a responsibility to protect them. That is why Castrol is proud to have designed stern tube and thruster lubricants, hydraulic fluids and greases to help protect both vessels and the seas. Our Bio Range lubricants have improved environmental performance in comparison to conventional mineral based oils. They address the lubricant needs of vessels at sea, and present an environmentally responsible option for your crew and marine life when it comes to spillages and disposal. OSPAR registered products Castrol BioBar, BioStat and BioTac MP are fully compliant with US 2013 VGP.
The support, advice and solutions our Liquid Engineers provide can help you meet and even exceed your environmental responsibilities, now and in the future.
Reduce your environmental impact. Castrol BioStat is formulated to reduce the environmental impact of operational discharges from stern tube and thruster seals and provide superior protection for gears and bearings.
