The world is shifting to API Group II and III base oils, but Africa has yet to fully grasp this reality. While Europe and the United States have embraced higher quality oils, Africa is still at a crossroads. Aside from South Africa, which has seen growth in Group II oils, the rest of Africa still lags far behind the rest of the world.

Issue 96: June 2017 Lubes'n'Greases EMEA Magazine
Current and future legislation is forcing original equipment manufacturers to find ways to improve fuel economy and reduce carbon dioxide emissions across their vehicle fleets. In the past, the industry largely depended on engine oil additives to cut fuel consumption. The optimum approach is a co-engineered solution where engine and lubricant are developed in parallel.
Biocides are under great scrutiny by European Union regulators for their harmful impact on humans and environment. Besides the high cost of registering products, suppliers could be asked to run numerous additional studies and exposure scenarios. The high costs and stringent evaluation by the authorities could lead to the disappearance of these products from the market.
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.
