The Role of Lubricants and Lubrication in Increasing Energy Efficiency and Reducing Emissions

The original aim of lubricants and lubrication is to reduce wear and friction. However, what further contribution can modern, application-oriented lubricants, demand-oriented strategies of lubrication systems, and application condition monitoring make to increasing energy efficiency and reducing emissions? Through practical examples, this presentation will demonstrate their potential to do just that. Additionally, it examines how closed-loop systems and alternative resources can help de-fossilize the lubricants themselves, thereby further reducing emissions.
