||The purpose of this document is to describe the range of environmentally preferable lubricants that may be used as a best management practice (BMP) by operators of vessels covered under the Vessel General Permit for Discharges Incidental to the Normal Operation of Vessels (VGP). Within this document, the term environmentally acceptable lubricant (EAL) is used to describe those lubricants that have been demonstrated to meet standards for biodegradability, toxicity and bioaccumulation potential that minimize their likely adverse consequences in the aquatic environment, compared to conventional lubricants. In contrast, lubricants that may be expected to have desirable environmental qualities, but have not been demonstrated to meet these standards, are referred to as environmentally friendly lubricants (EFLs) or biolubricants.
