Production capacity of extreme pressure additives for the lubricants industry to be expanded by 2023
LANXESS is expanding its production capacity for light-color sulfur carriers at its Mannheim site by several kilo tons. The specialty chemicals company is investing a double-digit million amount to expand the facilities in response to growing demand. The additional volumes are expected to be ...
Catalytic process to efficiently convert polyethylene to jet fuel and high-value lubricants
Washington State University researchers have developed an innovative way to convert plastics to ingredients for jet fuel and other valuable products, making it easier and more cost effective to reuse plastics. The researchers in their reaction were able to convert 90% of plastic to jet fuel and ...
Plastic components with longer service life
23 percent of global energy consumption can be attributed to friction losses. Components with reduced friction therefore represent an important contribution to conserving resources and achieving climate protection targets. In the case of plastics, reduced friction can also reduce microplastics in ...
In extreme heat or in the vacuum of space: a novel nanomaterial delivers top performance in extreme situations
You can lubricate a bicycle chain with oil, but what do you do with a Mars rover or a red-hot conveyor belt in the steel industry? Very special nanomaterials have now been studied by the TU Wien together with research groups from Saarbrücken (Germany), Purdue University in the USA and the ...
Capacity to be almost doubled
BASF will almost double the production capacity for its synthetic ester base stocks at its site in Jinshan, China. The investment comes in response to the rising demand for high-performance lubricants in Asia Pacific and further strengthens BASF’s position as a reliable supplier that strongly ...
Kyoto University simultaneously synthesizes dicarboxylic acids and hydrogen from diols
Every year, the chemical industry makes trillions of dollars synthesizing the countless chemical compounds we use every day. From pharmaceuticals for keeping you healthy to polyester woven into your shirt, industrial processes turn simple chemicals into complex, valuable compounds. Researchers in ...
Building a broad regional coverage of lubricant distribution in Southeast and Southern Asia
Brenntag has signed an agreement to acquire Oils ‘R Us Co., Ltd. headquartered in Thailand. The company has a diversified customer base as it distributes a wide range of lubricants for Automotive, Commercial Vehicle, Industrial and Marine applications. “Our acquisition in Thailand, which is the ...
Computational models based on molecular structure properties
Lubricated shafts, bearings and gears only run 'like clockwork' when the components slide on a perfect lubricating film, generating as little friction, wear and energy loss as possible. To achieve this, engineers need to know the behavior of the lubricant film in the so-called tribo-contact, ...
EU project RoadToBio publishes roadmap
How can the share of bio-based raw materials used in the European chemical industry be increased to 25 % by 2030? As conclusion of its two-year work, the EU project RoadToBio has published a roadmap that outlines how this goal could be achieved. Based on the analysis of nine product groups, the ...
Brenntag has signed an agreement to acquire the lubricants division of Reeder Distributors, Inc. that is a regional, integrated lubricant distributor headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, USA. Reeder Distributors’ fuel and equipment divisions are not part of the acquisition. The company services ...
