Abstract:

A life cycle assessment (LCA) is a quantitative measure that allows comparison of different lubricants with regards to their environmental impacts and carbon footprint.

This webinar will explain the LCA study performed for an industry average monograde hydraulic fluid and an efficient multigrade hydraulic fluid to compare the two systems along the full life cycle, including its use phase. Modern and innovative high-performance lubricants demonstrate environmental benefits in the use phase, which is not included in standard cradle-to-gate LCAs.

This presentation will also highlight the critical elements needed to ensure comparability, as well as key elements to be considered for the validity of such a comparison.
