On-Demand Webinar: Green Bio-based Base Oils And Lubricants For Our Sustainable Future | Nuspec Oil and Pangea SI

February 24, 2022
Mike Callis

Sustainable base oils have created an opportunity for alternative products which many companies have begun to adopt early in order to push for a greener future. Base oils are a core component for the manufacturing of both industrial and automotive lubricants. Lubricants are essential for society, holding primary roles in the functioning of machinery and moving parts. Businesses like Nuspec Oil, are leading the way for a more sustainable industry by developing environmentally acceptable and renewable alternatives to regular base oils.

During the webinar, Dr. Boris Zhmud and Dr. Natalia Stawniak discussed:

• The history and advances in the field of bio-based lubricants;
• The concept of a net-zero production process for base oils;
• Political incentives rejuvenating interest in bio-based products.
