ROCOL removes PFAS from lubricant range for the food industry

05 April 2024

Food lubricant manufacturer, ROCOL has announced it will be removing per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from the formulations of its entire FOODLUBE product range.

From April, 100% of its FOODLUBE products will be PFAS-free. The company estimates that the new formulations will prevent around 425 kilograms of ‘forever chemicals’ reaching the environment every year. FOODLUBE packaging is also PFAS-free.

A universal PFAS restriction proposal is currently being debated in the European Union with the European Commission expected to respond to the proposals later this year.     
Commenting on the move, Gareth Procter, Senior Product Manager at ROCOL, said: “We are committed to being ahead of the curve, and have listened to our customers in the food industry, who have been the driving force for this change. To meet the increasing demands of the food sector, our customers want to know that they are supported in their efforts to meet their sustainability goals.

“We will continue to make developments in technology to ensure ROCOL is at the forefront of this topic, with the ultimate objective of all of our products being PFAS-free without any compromise to performance.”
