BioLife Range

The BioLife products are pure renewable and biodegradable isoparaffins used in a wide range of applications such as inks, paints & coatings, cleaning, degreasing, personal care, home care, heat transfer media, lubricants, hydraulic and metal working fluids...


The Totalenergies Ecosolutions advantage

BioLife range products are manufactured from 100% selected renewable Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) and show environmental benefits compared to their equivalent obtained from fossil feedstocks.

The vegetable feedstock considered in this evaluation are Crude Palm Oil, Sunflower, Rapeseed, and Used cooking oil (UCO). These four feedstocks are certified following the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification scheme (ISCC Plus).

Moreover, thanks to the patented high-pressure Hydro De Aromatization (HDA) technology coupled with narrow cut distillations, BioLife products offer pure free-aromatics* solutions.

They are registered under REACH with their own European Community (EC) numbers.

The environmental performance

 Compared with isoparaffins obtained from fossil hydrocarbons (from diesel, Gas-to-Liquid (GTL) and Coal-to-Liquid (CTL)) representing the vast majority of the market for isoparaffins:

  • Classified readily biodegradable (marine water OECD 306 guidelines) according to the worldwide Global Harmonized System
  • A reduction in the health impact of one factor:
    • 10 to 50 on aromatic content**
    • 300 on PAH content
    • 3 to 15 on benzo(a)pyrene eq content
  •  51% to 72%, 80% to 88% and 76% to 86% reduction of primary(non-renewable) energy consumtipn compared to diesel, GtL and CtL respectively.
  • A reduction of green house gas emissions from
    • 2 to 4.9 times compared to diesel
    • 1.1 to 1.4 times compared to GtL
    • 1.1 to 1.4 times compared to Ctl
