Castrol MAGNATEC BIO-SYNTHETIC and Castrol EDGE BIO-SYNTHETIC are innovative engine oils launched in 2017 and 2018.
They are manufactured with 25% sugarcane derived oil compounds and have been validated using industry approved tests as well as meeting US government bio-based product criteria. Both oils have also been certified carbon neutral to the BSI PAS 2060 standard. Castrol assessed the greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint of these products in line with the criteria of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and made a commitment to reducing emissions throughout the products’ life-cycle. This includes emissions associated with its production, packaging and distribution. Residual emissions were offset through BP Target Neutral using carbon credits from projects around the world that reduce or avoid greenhouse gas emissions. These projects also seek to provide economic, social and environmental benefits to the communities they serve.
Both products deliver a comparable performance to their non-bio derived equivalents enabling consumers to choose a renewable and carbon neutral alternative without compromising on performance.
