PURAGLOBE is now the proud sponsor of the SYNTAINICS MBC basketball team.

PURAGLOBE knows a thing or two about team effort. In making the most of American ingenuity and German engineering, it takes teamwork and commitment to transform used oil into the most advanced, sustainable base oil products available.

That’s part of the reason why PURAGLOBE is proud to sponsor the efforts of their “hometown” basketball team in Germany. The team, formerly know as the “Wolves,” is now named after PURAGLOBE’s flagship technology and products—”SYNTAINICS.”

PURAGLOBE was founded on a commitment to advancing sustainability in the oil industry. And the company’s SYNTAINICS® base oil technology provides the most advanced, sustainable oil products available. SYNTAINICS® technology makes a difference in reducing CO2-emissions and enabling sustainable solutions for “cleaner and greener” base oils, motor oils, and lubricants. PURAGLOBE’s marketing director, Dr. Soenke Moehr explains that “SYNTAINICS® is about transformation, it’s about striving for success. And that resonates with the SYNTAINICS MBC basketball team.”

In announcing the sponsorship, Martin Geissler, the manager of the SYNTAINICS MBC team explained how it was “historic” and how the team is striving to be “at the top of the league” this coming season. And PURAGLOBE CEO Andreas Schueppel set an even higher goal saying, “I am certain that the SYNTAINICS MBC team will be in the playoffs next season.”

Of course, it’s not so much if you win or lose, but how you play the game. And when you’re developing technology to reduce CO2-emissions and promoting sustainability and teamwork—we all win. And no matter what happens in the upcoming season, PURAGLOBE and the SYNTAINICS MBC basketball team are undoubtedly a winning combination.

Check out the CARE FOR CLIMATE® Racing Team—winners of the 2017 24-hour endurance race at Nürburgring, Germany, and their Porsche Cayman GT4 Bioconcept-Car (aka “the world’s fastest base oil R&D lab”).

The CARE FOR CLIMATE® Racing Team was running with PURAGLOBE SYNTAINICS® finished lubricants: SAE 5W50 RACING OIL, and DCT POWERFORCE RACING FLUID. Both were formulated using PURAGLOBE’s sustainable, innovative base oil products, which are not only good for the environment—but good for winning.

A Winning Start: PURAGLOBE SYNTAINICS® for Motorcycles

Wayne, PA (USA)—PURAGLOBE made its debut in motorcycle racing sports with its sponsorship of the penz13.com Team at the 24 Hours of Le Castellet “Bol d’ Or” on 16 September 2017.

The penz13.com racing team took first place in the EWC Class—running with an innovative, sustainable PURAGLOBE SYNTAINICS® engine oil, specially formulated for motorcycles.

In winning the season opener of the FIM Endurance World Championship, penz13.com drivers Markus Reiterberger (GER), Alex Polita (ITA) and Danny Webb (GBR) are off to a great start.

PURAGLOBE has proven the performance of its SYNTAINICS® engine oil for car racing. And now the penz13.com has done the same for motorcycle racing, under the grueling conditions of a challenging 24-hour endurance race. And while PURAGLOBE proved the performance of sustainable motor oil inside the engine, team leader Rico Penzkofer explained the outstanding performance of the penz13.com drivers:

“I’m glad we were able to show what we can do…Markus is always fast, and Danny and Alex showed brilliant performance, especially considering they didn’t know the track, and this was the first time they raced at night.”

And so it seems that PURAGLOBE SYNTAINICS® motorcycle oil—and the penz13.com racing team—are a winning combination…

Winning with PURAGLOBE SYNTAINICS® Racing Oil & Fluids

Press Release: 28 May, 2017

Wayne, PA—The CARE FOR CLIMATE® team (sponsored by PURAGLOBE) raced their way to victory during the ADAC Zurich 24-hour race at Nuerburgring. PURAGLOBE guests enjoyed VIP accommodations at the finish line, and were trackside as the CARE FOR CLIMATE® Porsche Cayman GT4 won the AT class.

Besides beating the hard-driving competition, the team demonstrated that sustainable fuels, oils, and lubricants are good for the environment—and for winning—even during the most demanding, high- performance applications. From the starting line to the winner‘s circle, the CARE FOR CLIMATE® Porsche Cayman GT4 was running with PURAGLOBE SYNTAINICS® finished lubricants (SAE 5W50 RACING OIL, and DCT POWERFORCE RACING FLUID).

And lap after grueling lap, the CARE FOR CLIMATE® Team—driven by Axel, Daniel, Smudo, and Tom—proved they have what it takes to win, while promoting sustainability throughout the motorsport community. Smudo‘s celebrity status (as a German hip-hop star) generated much publicity for the CARE FOR CLIMATE® initiative on and off the track.

Beyond the PURAGLOBE VIP lounge, more than 200,000 spectators watched the racing action, visited exhibitions, and discovered exciting new technologies, such as the futuristic, hybrid-engine technology unveiled by Mercedes AMG, for Formula One cars on the track, and AMG sport cars on the street.

The race also marked another first: using their exclusive UOP HyLubeSAT™ technology, PURAGLOBE became the first to develop performance-proven, racing engine oils and dual clutch transmission (DCT) fluids based on sustainable Group III base oils. PURAGLOBE has been meticulously engineering Group III base oil technology and the SYNTAINICS® product line—and will soon be online in North America and Europe offering sustainable Group III base oils and solvents made from used oil.

And with preparations for the 2018 race already starting, PURAGLOBE and the CARE FOR CLIMATE® team are gaining attention—and leading the way toward unsurpassed performance, sustainability, and cleaner mobility.
