STLE releases white paper on electric vehicles

The Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE) has released a white paper on electric vehicles (EVs) that features the latest advancements and future outlook. 

The 32-page white paper is based on findings from STLE’s inaugural Tribology and Lubrication for E-Mobility Conference held in November 2021. The conference included more than 20 speakers from leading companies and organisations with an interest in e-mobility, providing unique perspectives to help unify requirements for EV lubricants. 

The white paper was prepared by Dr. Neil Canter of Chemical Solutions, STLE technical advisor and a member of the STLE EV Conference Planning Committee. 

“The revolutionary shift from internal combustion engine powered vehicles to BEVs has significant ramifications for producers of automotive lubricants, industrial lubricants and raw materials used in their manufacture,” said Canter. 

“STLE is leading the charge for identifying the technical challenges and commercial opportunities related to EV technology.”

STLE’s new white paper is now available in print and digital formats and is free to both members and non-members. To order the white paper,visit www.stle.org or call +1 (847) 825-5536. 

STLE also announced that it is organising The Second Annual STLE Tribology and Lubrication for E-Mobility Conference on November 30-December 1, 2022, at the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) in San Antonio, Texas, U.S.A., which will be feature a hybrid format.
