RIYADH: ADNOC Distribution, UAE's state-owned oil company, launched a new Voyager Green Series range of lubricant products for both petrol and diesel engines, made from 100 percent plant-based base oil.
The new products are part of ADNOC Distribution’s overall strategy to continue expanding its sustainable and environmentally-friendly product range.
Voyager PX Green is for petrol engines and Voyager DX Green for diesel engines.
These are the first approach in the region to be made entirely from plant-based base oils.
“Leveraging our in-house research team and production facilities, we will continue to invest in innovation that offers greater choice, quality and supports our move towards a more diversified energy mix, Bader Saeed Al-Lamki, CEO of ADNOC Distribution said.”
Plant-based base oils are made from sustainable feedstock sources, such as palm, soy, coconut and rapeseed.
The range is formulated to deliver higher levels of engine performance than conventional synthetic base oils, due to its unique molecular composition.
The new series will also carry certifications from the internationally recognized American Petroleum Institute, known as API, in addition to the major vehicle manufacturer approvals.
This new lubricants range will be available in the UAE from March 2022 through the company's international distribution network in 19 countries.
