Availability of biolubricants
New products that are eligible for ecolabels are continually being developed and brought onto the market. Simultaneouslythe requirements for different ecolabels are revised regularly.
Environmental performance requirements and market availability of biolubricants are closely connected. That is why the requirements for biolubricants and market developments will both be discussed consecutively.
Within the current market supply, two classes of biolubricants may be distinguished, based on their degree of eco-friendliness.
Furthermore, a description of the availability of ecolabeled products will be provided.
The annex provides information on proposed criteria for the sustainable purchasing of biolubricants.
