ALIA Virtual Panel Discussion: Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs)
Moderator: Dr. T.C.S.M. Gupta, Senior Vice President – Quality, R&D and Technical, Apar Industries Limited
Industry practices are moving towards more sustainable products and solutions, responsible care and consumption of raw materials. These items are becoming increasingly important in ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) reporting, which is now one of the key performance indicators of businesses. The development and deployment of Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs) is becoming a key topic in many sectors such as marine, energy, food, agriculture, manufacturing and mining. With the evolving concepts of EALs/biodegradability standards, how will this impact Asia Pacific?
This panel discussion aims to address the following:
- Create awareness of the changing trends and concepts of EALs/biodegradability
- Existing standards for EALs/biodegradable lubricants
- Applicable labelling programs
- Raw materials and classification
