Unlocking New Possibilities at the Molecular Level – Environmentally Acceptable Industrial Gear Fluids

AbstractEnvironmental protection is a top priority for many companies— and oil marketers continually look to unlock possibilities at the molecular level to drive measurable results. Growing demand for lubricants with improved environmental protective properties is driven by regulatory requirements and social responsibility to protect the land and sea. Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs) meet regulatory standards for biodegradability, nonbioaccumulative potential and minimal toxicity to aquatic life.

To help the world Move Cleaner, Create Smarter and Live Better, Lubrizol has launched our EcoAssurant™ portfolio of environmentally acceptable finished fluids, additive packages and components that will elevate the environmentally protective qualities of lubricants in industrial applications, worldwide. This presentation will explain the move towards environmentally acceptable lubricants as well as opportunities oil companies can tap into.  In addition, the presentation will introduce the Lubrizol® IG22EL series of industrial gear fluids, formulated from bio-based synthetic esters, and meeting the EU Ecolabel requirements.
