Issue 29: October 2011 Lubes'n'Greases EMEA Magazine


Synthetic Specialists

Demand is growing for synthetic greases. Wilfried Bartz says these products have impressive strengths – and some weaknesses – and that users should consider both.

Cutting Down on Distributors

An ExxonMobil distributor watched the company reduce its dealer network in Germany by 90 percent. Could it be a sign of things to come?

Cross Ways

Europe’s auto and lubricants industries are developing a test meant to ensure engine oils don’t turn to gel in cold weather. An American says they may be taking the wrong approach.

Wind Energy Encounters Turbulence

Gearboxes in wind turbines are wearing out and breaking with surprising frequency. The industry wants solutions. Lubricants and more effective maintenance could help.

Bright Stock in Short Supply

Closures of Group I base oil plants have created a shortage of bright stock. That has spawned investment in new capacity and a search for alternatives.

Shipping Safely

Improperly packed shipping containers pose threats to people and property. The International Labor Organization wants to protect them by promoting best practices.

Grom-Ex: Hand Built

Grigoriy and Roman Lyubin built a business and brand in Ukraine’s challenging lubricant market. Now they are expanding into neighboring countries.
