Since 2010, CONDAT has switched its top-selling range of products to meet biodegradable OECD 301 standards, reducing products’ impact on the environment and on the excavated soil.
Faithfull to its philosophy of partnership, Condat has recently developed a brand new grease for the main bearing with a main tunnel constructor. Fully biodegradable and molybden free, BTG 4602 has been approved by Herrenknecht after a joint program of validation. This new grease has been launched in 2018 and is used on several TBMs, including the Grand Paris sites such as at the EOLE shipyard on a 11 m slurry machine.
To demonstrate no relevant risks for either the environment or human health, CONDAT can also supply thorough study and risk assessment of its product toxicology. With the future as a requirement, CONDAT works to respond in a reliable, responsible and sustainable way to its customers’ needs.
