Neste enables world’s first industrial lubricant with nearly 100% biobased content

December 21, 2019 |

In Finland, the world’s first industrial lubricant with nearly 100% bio-based content, AT Renewable Penetrating Lubricant, is being launched by AT-Tuote. The product is based on a new formulation: 95% of its content is derived from renewable sources, Neste MY Renewable Isoalkane being the key component.

Thanks to its primarily bio-based content, AT Renewable Penetrating Lubricant has a significantly smaller carbon footprint than fossil alternatives. 95% of the content is also readily biodegradable. As the spray lubricant has carbon dioxide as a propellant, it is also safe to use because of extremely low VOC (volatile organic compounds) content and its non-flammable nature.

AT Renewable Penetrating Lubricant can be safely used in all industrial, automotive, DIY applications, and will be internationally launched in the Nordic Countries, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Brazil in spring 2020.

Neste MY Renewable Isoalkane, used either as is or further distilled, is a long-lasting, safe and odorless alternative to traditional mineral oils. It can replace fossil-based content in multiple applications, such as in paints, coatings and lubricants. Neste MY Renewable Isoalkane is produced entirely from waste and residue oils and fats, and its use helps reduce fossil oil based emissions to the atmosphere. It is readily biodegradable in accordance with the OECD 301 test guideline, which makes it an environmentally-friendly component.
