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.

A valuable tool for anyone interested in environmentally friendly and biobased lubricants, this book describes:

  • The requirements that low environmental impact lubricants have to pass in the currently defined biodegradability and toxicity tests
  • The particular requirements of the environment, the principles and the reliability of testing biodegradability, and the properties of an environmentally acceptable hydraulic fluid
  • Common terminology used to describe the key characteristics of environmental fluids, certifying standards and labeling programs
  • Different types of environmentally preferable fluids available, the strengths, limitations and comparable performance of fluid types
  • Several technologies related to biolubricants synthesis
  • The main scientific and technological trends related to enzymatic catalysis production
  • Recent advances in farnesene-derived base oils, estolides, epoxidized soybean oils, isostearic acid, and new plant oil–based monomers and polymers
  • Performance and technical requirements of low–environmental impact lubricants along with their biodegradability and ecotoxicity evaluations
  • Current standards for environmentally acceptable lubricants to the actual requirements of the environment and reproducibility of biodegradation test methods
  • Availability of different types of environmentally preferable fluids, their strengths, limitations, and comparable performance
  • Best maintenance practices for prolonged fluid and equipment life
  • Directions for future research, and more
