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 Total 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.
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
- 10 to 50 times lower on aromatics content**
- 300 times lower on the PAH content
- 3 to 15 times lower on the benzo(a)pyrene eq content
83%, 92% and 93% reduction in primary energy consumption compared to diesel, CTL and GTL respectively
83% reduction of non-renewable resource consumption to diesel and 94% reduction compared to both CTL and GTL
1.4 time reduction of the fossil CO2 emissions
