Biosynthetic Technologies

Biosynthetic® Technologies manufactures a revolutionary new class of biobased synthetic compounds called Estolides. Estolides are made from organic fatty acids found in various bio-derived oils. They can be used as the primary base oil of a lubricant formulation, a component of a base oil co-blend, or even as an additive. These high-performance sustainable bases oils are suitable for a variety of applications, such as:

Industrial          Personal Care           Metalworking Fluids         Marine           Food Grade

Biosynthetic sustainable base oils are compatible with commonly used lubricant base oils and additives. As a result, they can be used as a drop-in replacement for most existing formulations available in the market, today!

Our Commitment to Sustainability

At Biosynthetic® Technologies, we understand the importance of sustainable manufacturing practices. We are constantly looking for ways to minimize the negative impacts on the environment while conserving energy and natural resources in our manufacturing processes. Our objective is to make sustainability a strategic focal point of our business. Resulting in  greater benefits for the environment in which we operate, the people that we work with and the communities we are part of. With Biosynthetic Technologies’ life cycle assessments (LCA), products are tracked from cradle to gate which yield a carbon-negative rating!

At Biosynthetic Technologies, we are committed to sustainability and clearly focused on the responsible use of natural resources in our daily business. We understand that health, environmental awareness and traceability play just as large a role for consumers as quality and efficacy.

Estolide Technology

Our revolutionary new class of biobased synthetic compounds are called Estolides. These are naturally derived oils that improve the quality of formulated products and are biodegradable, non toxic and non-bioaccumulative. Our sustainable base oils are 70-90% biodegradable (OECD 301) with a bio-content (ASTM D6866) of 65-95%. Additionally, they display no bioaccumulation (OECD 107) and are non-toxic at 1000 mg/mL (OECD 201, OECD 202, OECD 203, OECD 209).

With a highly customizable structure, Estolides’ physical properties can be adapted for specific applications. In addition, their environmental compatibility allows them to be used in a wide range of applications ranging from lubricants to personal care. Overall, Estolides serve as naturally derived oils that improve the quality of formulated products.

BT4 base oils

BT4 base oils are low viscosity oils used to produce a wide variety of specialist products including lubricants, metalworking fluids, PCMOs, plasticizers and water treatment products.

BT22 base oils

BT22 base oils are medium viscosity oils used to produce a wide variety of specialist products including industrial and marine lubricants.

BT75 base oils

BT75 base oils are high viscosity oils used to produce a wide variety of specialist products including industrial and marine lubricants.

Sustainable Base Oil Products

Biosynthetic Technologies has developed and patented a new class of compounds called Estolides. These bio-based base oils meet the sustainability challenge many corporations are faced with today. Our Estolide technology can be used in a variety of applications:  Industrial Lubricants, Food Grade Lubricants, Marine Lubricants, PCMO, as well as Metalworking Fluids Additives. Our sustainable base oils are available in various ISO viscosity grades ranging from 22-680.

Biosynthetic Technologies’ base oils exhibit excellent lubricity and load carrying characteristics, strong oxidative and hydrolytic stability, and good demulsibility, and provide a high flash point and and good cold temperature performance as well. In addition to the impressive technical performance, Estolides offer excellent environmental performance. These oils contain high bio-content, are biodegradable and nontoxic, and do not bioaccumulate.

In addition to the specialty oils highlighted above, Biosynthetic Technologies can custom blend estolide products to meet you viscosity needs.

Superior Performance

Biosynthetic® Technologies Estolide base oils provide superior wear protection, meaning fewer costly additives are needed in the final formulation. In addition, estolide base oil shows excellent hydrolytic stability and superior oxidative stability. Biosynthetic Technologies base oils provide superior shear stability numbers when compared to other high viscosity base stocks, helping your finished lubricants retain their viscosity, even in severe conditions.
