A single liter of oil can pollute as much as 1,000,000 liters of water. That’s why Western States Oil International offers a large selection of biodegradable lubricants that perform well across all kinds of applications, whilst still meeting stringent environmental requirements. Our products allow you to operate with respect for the environment, and without compromising on productivity or maintenance costs. We offer lubes manufactured from synthetic esters as well as vegetable oils (chiefly rapeseed).

Vegetable oils are:
