Amyris debuts EvoShield line of bio-based industrial lubricants

August 26, 2011 |

In California, Amyris unveiled EvoShield, its new product line of industrial lubricants.

EvoShield lubricants are a family of renewably-sourced solutions designed to satisfy the most advanced lubrication challenges without compromising quality or performance. EvoShield lubricants will be formulated from NovaSpecTM renewably-sourced synthetic base oils, derived from Amyris’s Biofene and produced by Novvi, Amyris’s joint venture with Brazil’s Cosan.

These lubricants will provide protection for equipment across a range of industrial applications, including hydraulic, compressor, turbine and gear oils, as well as specific formulations for marine and food-grade requirements.

As the Official Renewable Fuels Provider of the Raceway, Amyris also showcased the performance of its renewable diesel during the summit by powering a 2011 Audi Q7 TDI around the track. This demonstration marked the first on-road operation of a vehicle fueled by 100 percent neat Amyris renewable diesel.
