Sustainability in Lubricants & Grease
India – ExxonMobil Lubricants Private Limited participated at the 17th National Lubricating Grease Institute (NLGI) – India Chapter Annual Conference and showcased its expertly formulated comprehensive range of greases available in India. The conference, organized by NLGI – India chapter from Feb. 12th to 14th, 2015 in Mamallapuram, is a premier platform for grease-related industry stakeholders in India.
Mobil’s line of industrial lubricants’ and grease product portfolio with advanced technology is well positioned to support the economic and industrial growth taking place in the country. The company has an excellent balanced portfolio of state-of-the-art, well proved, high-performance lubricants that can cater to the needs of many industrial sectors – including metals, cement, construction, mining, power generation, general manufacturing, plastics, food and beverage, pulp and paper, – all backed by ExxonMobil’s technology leadership & unmatched industry expertise. Customers rely on ExxonMobil because of the quality of its products, reliability, technological excellence and close association with many leading original equipment manufacturers and builders. With its comprehensive strategy, referred to as Advancing Productivity, Mobil leverages its technology leadership and application expertise to help companies enhance their operational safety, achieve their environmental care-related goals, and maximize productivity thus delivering energy efficiency benefits to its customers.
“ExxonMobil’s leadership in innovation is accentuated by its commitment to sustainability. This demands an efficient use of resources – human, environmental and operational. While energy efficiency remains one of the most visible and discussed sustainable business practices, sustainability as related to industrial lubricants presents an interesting dichotomy. Being based on crude oil as a raw material for both mineral based and synthetic based lubricants, lubricants appear to be the opposite of sustainability”, said Paul Grives, Global Services & Grease Marketing Manager, ExxonMobil Fuels, Lubricants & Specialties Marketing Company.
He further added, “Conversely, without industrial lubricants, future economic growth would not be possible. The resolution to this dichotomy comes in the form of energy and energy management. Industrial lubricants and greases play a key role in the effective management of energy. From energy efficient lubricants, to lubricants supporting renewable energy production, from long life or fill-for-life lubricants to lubricants offering excellent equipment protection.”
Sustainability through enhanced energy efficiency is a key business imperative across the world today. From an operations and cost efficiency perspective, reducing energy consumption can have a positive impact on a company’s bottom line. According to ExxonMobil’s Energy Outlook Report 2040, energy demand in 2040 is expected to double from 2010 levels, and the rate of increase is anticipated to be even higher in countries like India that have a rapidly expanding industrial business landscape.
According to Mr. Shankar Karnik, Mobil SHC Brand Manager & Energy Advisor, ExxonMobil Lubricants Private. Ltd., “There is a need for companies across industries to perceive energy efficiency through a strategic lens and align it to their core business objectives. In almost every sector, we’re now seeing companies achieve success by creating or deploying new technologies that use energy more efficiently, and using synthetic and energy-efficient lubricants can help achieve those results. In India, we are already working with various stakeholders to meet and exceed industry requirements for energy efficiency through our suite of next-generation technology lubricants.”
