Castrol Optigear synthetic carbon neutral

Wind turbines play an increasingly important role in reducing carbon emissions from the power sector. Lubricant technology plays a vital role in keeping today’s wind turbines running reliably and efficiently.


Castrol is the first lubricant supplier in the world to offer the wind industry certified carbon neutral lubricants1. Optigear Synthetic CT 320 and Optigear Synthetic X 320 are both certified to meet the BSI PAS 2060 specification for achieving and demonstrating complete carbon neutrality for their entire product lifecycle. This includes production, transportation and eventual disposal at the end of its service life and an overall plan to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

To achieve carbon neutrality, residual emissions are offset through BP Target Neutral, which sources carbon offset credits from projects that reduce or avoid GHG emissions. These projects also seek to provide economic, social and environmental benefits to the communities they serve.
