ADNOC Distribution Launches New Plant-Based Engine Oil

ADNOC Distribution, UAE’s leading fuel distributor, announced launching a new Voyager Green Series range of lubricant products for both petrol and diesel engines made from 100% plant-based base oil.

The company said it is bringing plant-based lubricants to the region for the first time, saying it comes as part of its plans to broaden lubricant offering and enhance its range of products that support a reduced carbon footprint

Voyager PX Green is developed specifically for petrol engines and Voyager DX Green for diesel engines. The high-quality blending technology is the first approach in the region to be made entirely from plant-based base oils, state news agency WAM reported.

ADNOC Distribution CEO Eng. Bader Saeed Al Lamk said the innovative new range offers customers a great range of choices to select the right lubricant for their vehicles.

“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.”

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.

Also, the new series will also carry certifications from the internationally recognized American Petroleum Institute (API) as well as and major vehicle manufacturer approvals, so customers can be assured of the highest levels of quality.

This new lubricants range will be available in the UAE from March 2022, as well as across the company’s international distribution network of 19 countries.
