A Comprehensive Review of Developing Environmentally Friendly
Lubricants A push from environmentally savvy consumers along with
recent changes in governmental regulations have paved the way for a
marketplace of products with high levels of environmental
performance. Fueled by the growing demand for biobased lubricants,
Environmentally Friendly and Biobased Lubricants highlights the
development of environmentally friendly additives that are
compatible with environmental regulations and describes the
approaches being used in this emerging area. Derived from research
topics shared over the years at various technical sessions of the
Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE) Annual
Meetings, the book includes a critical assessment of gaps and
weaknesses in the field of environmentally friendly fluids and
biobased lubricants. Each chapter is written by authors selected
from the environmentally friendly fluids and biobased lubricants
sessions of STLE and also incorporates input from prominent
researchers invited to take part in the book. Expert contributors
discuss the control, production, usage, and disposal of lubricants;
factor in related policies, laws, and regulations around the world;
and include case studies demonstrating the uses and values of
commercially viable biobased lubricants. The book is divided into
five sections that cover advanced environmentally friendly base
oils and feedstocks, biobased hydraulic lubricants and
biodegradability, chemically/enzymatically modified environmentally
friendly base oils, vegetable oil-based environmentally friendly
fluids, and additives for environmentally friendly fluids.
