The two-in-one dual-stage design of the microGreen cartridge oil filter combines an advanced synthetic pre-filter with a full synthetic filter to ensure extended, high performance filtration efficiency and engine protection. The filter utilizes the highest quality materials such as a Viton® o-ring and full synthetic filter media with mesh backing.
Extensive industry standard laboratory tests demonstrate that the microGreen cartridge oil filter exceeds industry standards for overall filtration performance, ensuring the quality and integrity of the filter and the pressure differential across the dual-stage filter layers.
A variety of conditions were simulated in laboratory testing under ISO protocol ISO-4548, concluding that that the microGreen cartridge oil filter offers exceptional engine protection and delivers superior contaminant removal capability as compared to a conventional filter. The results clearly exceed performance requirements and demonstrate the high quality of the filter assembly and manufacture.
The development of the cartridge microGreen filter was built upon the extensive testing of the microGreen
spin-on oil filter. Throughout the course of over 200 million miles of on-road testing, countless oil samples were taken from engines and sent to an independent laboratory for analysis. The results conclude that the microGreen filter can effectively achieve extended oil drain intervals. Today, microGreen filters have logged over 300 million miles of use on the road.
Save on Maintenance Costs
Maintenance costs can add up, whether you’re changing oil and oil filters for your personal vehicle or an entire commercial fleet. The microGreen spin-on filter reduces the costs associated engine maintenance by extending the use of the engine oil.
As an added bonus, our dual-stage cartridge oil filters can help reduce wear and tear on your vehicle’s engine through the increased capture of small particles. This impact on engine efficiency and cleanliness can result in decreased long-term engine maintenance and provide indirect savings potential.
Fleets can also achieve additional cost savings with decreased vehicle downtime due to reduced maintenance time.

Save the Environment
Used oil and oil filters contain toxic substances such as lead, cadmium, benzene and zinc, and when disposed of improperly, can be a serious threat to drinking water and the earth.
microGreen helps to alleviate the environmental impact generated by the use of engine oil and oil filters. Because our cartridge filters clean oil more efficiently and are longer-lasting than traditional filters, vehicle owners are able to use fewer filters and significantly less oil over time. With fewer oil changes and filter replacements, the use of microGreen cartridge filters has the potential to eliminate a significant amount of hazardous materials from the waste stream.
In addition to helping reduce waste, microGreen cartridge filters also help to reduce CO2 emissions, which have been proven to be harmful to the environment. According to an independently conducted Life Cycle Analysis (LCA)*, our filters have a significant impact on the reduction of CO2 emissions, compared to conventional oil filters. The results of the study indicate that:
- Using a microGreen filter can yield savings of 55-104 kilograms of CO2 over 30,000 miles, compared to equivalent size conventional spin-on filters that are changed every 3,000-5,000 miles, respectively.
- These savings are equivalent to 19.79 pounds of CO2 per gallon of oil.
- Overall, microGreen filters contribute to a 75-85% reduction in CO2 emissions.
*The LCA is a methodical approach to evaluate the environmental impacts associated with a product by identifying and quantifying material and energy flows. The LCA is conducted under the ISO 14000 environmental management standard. The LCA included the life-cycle phases of: (1) resource extraction; (2) materials manufacture; (3) oil filter manufacture; (4) oil filter transport; (5) end of life disposition, including recycling and land-filling. Life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions evaluated acquisition and production of raw materials, product manufacture, transportation of materials and finished products, product use, and end of life disposition.
