With new, tougher environmental regulations going into effect, the risk of dealing with lubricant discharges has never been greater, but that risk can be minimized by using RSC Bio Solutions’ line of readily biodegradable lubricants, cleaners and solvents. Our RSC EnviroLogic® and RSC SAFECARE® series meet a wide variety of environmental regulations, such as the 2013 EPA Vessel General Permit (VGP), SARA, SNAP, and US EPA.

RSC Bio Solutions certifies that our products meet the EPA’s definition of Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs)
EPA VGP and sVGP compliant and technically feasible


Our mission truly is to help keep you moving forward. Time is money, and we respect your time. That’s why we design products that can create lower cleanup costs, less downtime and that can pay for themselves almost immediately after an unauthorized discharge.

RSC Bio Solutions’ non-sheening products are biodegradable by 60% within 28 days (according to OECD 301B of ASTM D7373 methods), leaving the waterways and marine environment safer and cleaner.

Not to mention, the public perception of a company utilizing sustainable methods and products is much more positive than that of one cleaning up after yet another petroleum based incident. And perceptions can certainly affect bottom lines.
At the end of the day, though, you need fluids and cleaners that do more than simply comply with the 2013 EPA VGP. You need fluids and cleaners that deliver the performance your equipment demands.

In other words, RSC Bio Solutions helps keep you moving forward.


The EPA and local state and municipal governments mandate compliance with various regulations. But regulatory compliance doesn’t have to involve performance tradeoffs. RSC Bio Solutions’ EnviroLogic lubricants have broader operating temperature ranges, superior lubricity and antiwear characteristics resulting in longer changeover intervals and extended equipment life.

In fact, the EnviroLogic series of products has passed the Vickers and Denison pump tests that measure key component wear—with flying colors. Add to that, EnviroLogic’s compatibility with seals and elastomer materials and its well-established use in the offshore oil and gas industry across America and it’s safe to say, EnviroLogic hydraulic fluids are proven to meet or exceed the performance of their petroleum based counterparts.

The SAFECARE line of cleaners and solvents works just as well. The powerful, industrial strength, readily biodegradable products don’t compromise on performance. Plus, because they’re minimally toxic, they’re safer for users and safer for the environment.

There’s simply no reason not to switch. Extensive lab testing and field demonstrations have proven that RSC Bio Solutions’ lubricants perform as well as or better than petroleum based products. Our products have CEFAS Gold Rating (SC-1000) and have been approved by many original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
