Issue 97: July 2017 Lubes'n'Greases EMEA Magazine
Not all lubricant companies have the scale to operate in two such diametrically opposed markets. The choice of a mature region like Europe or a fast growing economy such as India is as much about a companyís vision and core capabilities than anything else.
Water in lubricating greases has been a concern for more than a century. Recent research shows that calcium sulfonate greases can be an answer to water issues for a wide variety of industrial applications.
Recently, concerns haves been voiced about mineral oil saturated hydrocarbons and mineral oil aromatic hydrocarbons in food-grade lubricants. But extensive research and testing shows these components pose no risk to users or the general public.
Lubes'n'Greases EMEA is the first independent regional business magazine for and about the lubricants, base oil, additives and lube packaging industries in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. It reports on marketing and technology trends, raw material supplies, regulations and OEM specifications, and the challenges faced by end users of lubes and greases and the solutions that meet their needs. Every issue includes breaking news, in-depth features and informed opinions.
LNG EMEA has separate content from its sister magazine, Lubes'n'Greases, but offers the same reliable, unbiased and vital reporting each month.
The print edition is free to qualified subscribers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and is available on a paid-subscription basis elsewhere. The digital edition, an exact replica of the print magazine, is free to qualified subscribers worldwide.
Print and digital subscribers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa will receive the Base Stock Guide for Europe, the Middle East and Africa in July.
