Issue 65: November 2014 Lubes'n'Greases Magazine
Europe, Middle East and Africa
The food and pharmaceutical industries are putting pressure on lubricant manufacturers to develop safer lubricants. The demands have taken the form of new and more stringent legislation and higher standards for hygiene.
Global demand for metalworking fluids has remained relatively flat since 2007. Demand in Europe reflects this trend where metalworking fluid consumption posted just a 1.5 percent increase in 2013.
Much of the recent discussion about the Middle East has focused on its emergence as an important base oil hub. In stark contrast, little attention has been paid to the shadowy, but growing, market in substandard lubricants.
Nigeria held its first Lubricant Summit in Lagos in August to discuss the state of the industry and plan the sector’s future. Attendees paid particular attention to used oil collection and the need for domestic base oil production.
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.
