Lubricants Can’t Be Green … Can They?

John Sander | Vice President of Research & Development, Lubrication Engineers

WEBINAR DESCRIPTION:

Is it possible for lubricants to be considered environmentally friendly? Learn about how biodegradability, bioaccumulation and ecotoxicity tests are used to measure the environmental impact of lubricants. Beyond that, find out how lubrication programs can be green through responsibly planned purchasing, storage, use and disposal – a challenge to the limited regulatory view of green lubricants that fails to consider longer lubricant and component life, and decreased energy use.

Learning Takeaways:

1) Yes, lubricants can be “green” – in a variety of ways.
2) How lubrication programs can reduce waste, reduce energy use and reduce environmental impact.
3) The importance of using biodegradability, bioaccumulation and ecotoxicity measurements – along with traditional lubricant performance attributes – to determine which environmentally friendly lubricant is right for your application.
