Engine Oil


Engine Oil

Novvi’s passenger car motor oils (PCMO) are available in a range of fuel-saving viscosities, meeting API SN and other industry and OEM requirements. Available for private labeling to jump-start your introduction of renewable and biodegradable products, Novvi’s PCMOs will deliver performance characteristics comparable to or better than other synthetic engine oils. At the same time, Novvi PCMOs bring game-changing environmental benefits when compared with petroleum-derived base oils.

Performance + Sustainability

Before Novvi, savvy consumers met a disappointing field when looking for environmentally friendly motor oils. Novvi engine oils fill the void with an alternative that meets top synthetic performance standards, provides cleaner emissions, protects vehicle components against wear, and helps improve fuel efficiency. Novvi motor oils offer strong market appeal and drop-in compatibility with hybrid and traditional cars, SUVs, vans, and light trucks.

Future Ready

In a highly competitive industry, automakers must meet new regulations without compromising the driving experience. Vehicle designers around the world are hard at work on plans to reduce vehicle weight, improve aerodynamics, and create smaller high-performance engines. These new engines increase performance demands on lubricants, as evidenced by the trend toward lower viscosity fluids that reduce internal friction and circulate better during cold starts.

Low Viscosity, High Performance

5W-30 is currently the most commonly used grade of engine oil, with more than 50 percent of the market. It is expected that 5W-20 and 0W-XX grades will encroach on this lead as automobile manufacturers increasingly recommend synthetic motor oils to meet technological demands. Novvi offers an ideal base stock to formulate these lower-viscosity, higher-performance grades.


The NovaSpec Base Oils used in Novvi Motor Oil are API Group III products. They are made of synthetic hydrocarbons and resemble poly-alpha olefins (PAOs) in chemical structure. Performance was the engineering driver behind the technology used to create these base oils, which have been used to successfully formulate 0W-20, 0W-30, 5W-20, 5W-30, and 10W-30 SAE motor oils.

Engine Tests

Novvi motor oils have passed the latest GF-5 API SN Core Test Program and are being used in an ongoing field trial with Las Vegas taxi cabs. NovaSpec is the only renewable base oil to ever pass a full API SN program as the sole base oil in the formulation.

Environmental Benefits

Engine oils formulated with NovaSpec deliver environmental benefits beyond contributing to increased fuel efficiency. NovaSpec is the only renewably sourced Group III base oil. Novvi Motor Oil improves sustainability at each step of the life cycle analysis—production, manufacturing, use, and disposal. It is also compatible with existing recycling and re-refining infrastructure, continuing to reduce petroleum use through responsible collection practices. Novvi engine oil is best solution for engine and environmental performance.


NovaSpec™ Base Oils

NovaSpec Base Oils are plant-based synthetic oils designed to deliver high performance, while offering major environmental benefits when compared with petroleum-sourced base oils. Ecofriendly advantages include nontoxicity, renewability, and improved biodegradability.

Novvi encourages and supports others’ efforts to formulate new product applications from its revolutionary NovaSpec Base Oils and also offers a wide range of preformulated oils and lubricants.
