Castrol in the US

In the US, Castrol is a top choice for motorists who change their own oil, as well as being one of the leading lubricant suppliers to the rapidly growing wind industry. Our metal working and machining fluids are critical to the production of components for the automotive and aerospace industries. Our production fluids are at the forefront of oil exploration and production in the waters of the US Gulf and our specialist greases and lubricants have played key roles in space exploration for decades.

e-Fluids for electric mobility

In June 2021, Castrol announced the launch of Castrol ON, our e-Fluids brand for electric mobility, which will work to create a new era for electric vehicles (EVs). From transmission fluids, which are inside many EVs already on the road, to greases and thermal fluids, these products enable EVs to run smoothly and efficiently while staying cool. In addition, Castrol e-Fluids also support equipment used at sea in the transfer of power from an engine or electric motor to a propeller or thruster. Castrol’s e-Fluids are already used by more than half of electric and hybrid vehicle manufacturers.

We developed these e-Fluids in close collaboration with industry partners, including the Jaguar Racing Formula E Team, so our technologies were tested to the limit on the racetrack before they ever reached the road.

Castrol has a long history of innovating and delivering cutting-edge solutions for emerging technologies. Our new Castrol ON range offers OEM [original equipment manufacturer] partners a full range of advanced e-Fluids to meet the challenging technical demands of electric vehicles.

Carbon-neutral product mix

We have also produced a diverse mix of carbon-neutral Castrol products, including for passenger cars (EDGE Professional), for the wind industry (Optigear), and carbon-neutral lubricants for the commercial trucking industry (VECTON).

Digital innovation

In the wind sector, Castrol has a joint venture called ONYX InSight, a digital monitoring platform that helps wind farm operators track the condition of turbines, optimize maintenance and reduce operating costs. ONYX InSight has deployed this technology to thousands of turbines across the US wind market.

Low carbon partnerships

Castrol is also driving low carbon solutions through external partnerships, such as our sponsorship of the Roush Fenway Racing (RFR) NASCAR team. In February 2021, RFR announced that it had become the first-ever carbon-neutral NASCAR team, with Castrol pledging to support its carbon reduction and offset programs throughout the 2022 racing season.

A few months later, in April 2021, Castrol and the Los Angeles Rams football team announced a similar partnership. With our help, the Rams are set to become the first team to offset the carbon emissions from air travel to away games throughout an entire NFL season. Castrol and the Rams are also joining with Keep America Beautiful — the largest community improvement organization in the United States — to clean up waste in every city the Rams visit this season, including Los Angeles and Charlotte, the home cities of Castrol sustainability ambassadors Robert Woods (of the Rams) and Ryan Newman (of Roush Fenway Racing).

Our mission is to inspire and educate people to take action every day to improve and beautify their community environment. That’s why we’re thrilled to work with partners like Castrol, Roush Fenway Racing, and the Rams who are inspiring us and others to take action to improve and beautify their local communities.
