DIN EN 16807
Liquid petroleum products - Bio-lubricants - Criteria and requirements of bio-lubricants and bio-based lubricants; German version EN 16807:2016
Flüssige Mineralöl-Erzeugnisse - Bio-Schmierstoffe - Kriterien und Anforderungen für Bio-Schmierstoffe und biobasierte Schmierstoffe; Deutsche Fassung EN 16807:2016
This European Standard specifies the term bio-lubricant and minimum requirements for all kinds of bio-lubricants and bio-based lubricants while, for example, the EEL refers to specific bio-lubricant families. This European Standard also briefly describes relevant test method needs with respect to the characterization of bio-lubricants. It presents recommendation for related standards in the field of biodegradability, product functionality and the amount of different renewable raw materials and/or different bio-based contents used during manufacturing of such bio-lubricants forming one product group. This document has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 19 "Gaseous and liquid fuels, lubricants and related products of petroleum, synthetic and biological origin", the secretariat of which is held by NEN (Netherlands). The responsible German committee is Working Committee NA 062-06-83 AA, Mirror Committee of CEN/TC 19/WG 33 "Bio lubricants" of Technical Committee Mineralöl- und Brennstoffnormung (FAM) (Standardization Committee for petroleum, fuels, lubricants and related products (FAM)) at DIN Standards Committee Materials Testing (NMP).
