How important is to combine

performance and environmental


“The commitment of Motul to the respect of

the environmental policies started with the

foundation of the brand, introducing some

high-performance lubricants that use

vegetable, non oil-derived additives. In

addition, Motul has developed a product line

named BIO that guarantees an 80 percent

biodegradability (test CEC L - 33 - A - 93).

Among them, BIO 2T, the Estere-based

synthetic lubricant for motorbike engines. The

environmentally friendly line includes the

cleaning products like Moto Wash, a

biodegradable and motorbike-specific cleaner

for any kind of surface. The choices made by

Motul in terms of environment led the

company to choose fully recyclable plastic and

metal packaging solutions. Regarding the

certifications, Motul is aligned to the ISO 9001

standard for the quality management systems

and ISO TS 16949 for automotive quality”.

What are the most interesting and rapidly

expanding markets?

“In a globalized and highly-international

competitive scene, we have to think to a new

way fo defining the markets using the online

sales phenomenon as a new key. As a matter

of fact, the e-stores have eliminated borders

and barriers. The competition on the web

leads us to an even stronger presence on the

territory in order to provide services that are

more and more in-line with the development

of the automotive field. In the last year, for

example, the countries where it’s possible to

buy Motul products hit the 100 mark. A really

important accomplishment that draws a new

starting line for a further growth”.
