Green ‘Bio-based’ Lubricants for Metalworking Applications

Download Type: Adobe PDF

The “Go Green” mentality is making a significant impact on all elements of our society. The construction, public utilities, manufacturing, food processing, agricultural, military—even the local, state and federal governmental authorities and agencies—are starting to feel the positive effects of this changing mindset. For the sake of this article, we have suggested a couple of products specifically for the metalworking industry.

Through various green collar job initiatives, and the support of the federal government, new industries are emerging. Algae production, Wind technology, solar power, vegetable oils, and recycling companies are just a few examples of the industries that are growing and should give our economy a shot in the arm.

One manufacturing sector that has been gaining strength and momentum in the U.S. in recent years is the bio-based, biodegradable lubricant industry. These lubricant products are formulated from renewable, agricultural plant resources. The latest bio-based technology transforms these oils into high-performance, biodegradable lubricants that can endure the harshest of conditions. The base stock of these vegetable oils are derived from—but not limited to—soy, corn, canola and sunflower. All of these commodities are sustainable, renewable and available right here in America.
