Complying with New EPA Lubricant, Cleaner Requirements for Marine, Offshore Industries

When: Thursday, June 12, 2014 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM EDT

The U.S. EPA’s 2013 Vessel General Permit (VGP) requirements are now in place requiring the use of environmentally acceptable lubricants (EALs) in oil to water interfaces for vessels over 79 feet. The VGP revision also requires any above water line hull cleaning or deck washdowns resulting in discharge to be conducted with appropriate cleaners and detergents.

This webinar will explain the 2013 VGP EAL regulations and what impact they now have on marine transportation, offshore oil and gas and marine construction operators. The webinar will also outline a “no worries” path to compliance for operators by using tested, approved and technically feasible EALs across a broad range of equipment and component applications.
