The purpose of the USDA Biopreferred program is to promote the increased purchase and use of biobased products. The program is expected to promote economic development, creating new jobs and providing new markets for farm commodities. To the extent that the BioPreferred program achieves its purpose, the increased purchase of biobased products will also be expected to reduce petroleum consumption, increase the use of renewable resources, better manage the carbon cycle, and may contribute to reducing adverse environmental and health impacts. RLI proudly displays the USDA Certified Biobased Product Label on its products.


In December 2013 the US Environment Protection Agency’s (EPA) Vessel General Permit (VGP) came into effect. The revised legislation introduces new environmental regulations for vessels operating in US coastal waters and Great Lakes. The legislation states that environmentally acceptable lubricants* (EAL) must be used in all oil-to-sea interfaces on vessels. Hydro Safe has developed a full product line to meet these new requirements set by the EPA as Enviornmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs).
