Lubes'n'Greases Europe-Middle East-Africa 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.

"At AXEL we direct most of our advertising to Lubes’n’Greases, because it has such a good reach across our industry and is widely recognized as a leader in the field."
