Issue 93: March 2017 Lubes'n'Greases Magazine
Europe, Middle East and Africa
The 2016 ACEA European Oil Sequences were formally released in December. The primary drivers for this edition were the replacement of obsolete tests, the introduction of new tests to reflect current engine technology and the need to address concerns about the impact of biofuels on lubricant performance. An expert from Infineum explores the key changes to the lubricant sequences and their impact on formulating engine oils.
The growing demand for used cars in many African countries and the general expansion of the regionís automobile market have boosted the prospects for small lubricant blenders in the medium term. However, experts say the fortunes of these companies could change as the popularity of synthetic oils grows in the region.
