What did the Department of Defense Say?
After successful performance evaluations, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) has officially introduced soy biobased penetrating lubricants and a spill sorbent into the federal buying system.
On behalf of DLA Aviation, the National Defense Center for Energy and Environment (NDCEE) operated by Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC), evaluated the products as part of the Green Product Evaluation and Demonstration Program. The evaluation included two soy-based penetrating lubricants and a soy-containing spill absorbent. The soy-containing spill absorbent was Nature's Broom.
“The two product categories fit very nicely into the DoD ‘Go Green’ initiative,” says DLA Aviation Chief Calvin Lee of the Hazardous Minimization and Green Products Branch. “The participating maintenance activities within the installations found the biobased sorbent and penetrating lubricants to be acceptable alternatives to the currently used non-green or petroleum-based products.
