Current criteria for awarding the EU Ecolabel licence to lubricants is defined by COMMISSION DECISION (EU) 2018/1702 of 8th November 2018. The product group ‘lubricants’ comprise any lubricant falling within one of the following sub-groups[8]: • Total Loss Lubricants (TLL). • Partial Loss Lubricants (PLL). • Accidental Loss Lubricants (ALL).


Lubricants that are awarded an EU Ecolabel licence can show the EU Ecolabel Logo and licence number. Basic information on how the EU Ecolabel Logo should be used is given in Fig.3. [9].

Blue Angel was introduced in 1978 by Germany and represents the first ecolabel in EU [11]. The Blue Angel logo can be used in following way (Fig.7) [11].


Nordic Swan was established in 1989 as the official ecolabel of the Nordic countries[10]. The basic rules of how the Nordic Swan logo should be used are given below (Fig.6) [10].

Fully biodegradable engine oil has yet to be developed so there is currently no criteria for awarding ecolabels to biodegradable engine oil.


In addition to the above, product information about engine oil lubricant performance is put on every lubricant label as shown in Fig. 8. [12].
