What are Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EAL)?

Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs) are defined as biodegradable, non-bioaccumulative and minimally harmful for aquatic environment (like fish, seaweeds …). EAL products must be used on equipment with oil-to-sea interfaces unless technically infeasible and are mandatory in United States waters since 2013.
