Issue 69: March 2015 Lubes'n'Greases Magazine
Europe, Middle East and Africa
The next big date for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals initiative comes in June 2015 when new substance and mixture classifications will be issued. This deadline and another in June 2018 are raising concerns over the security of supply for some key ingredients for metalworking fluids.
Europe and the Americas together accounted for 85 to 90 percent of an estimated 250,000 to 300,000 metric tons of global demand for biolubricants in 2013. While these products amounted to less than 1 percent of the global finished lubricants market, the segment is experiencing above average growth due to gradually increasing market penetration.
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.
