With rising petroleum prices as well as increasing environmental concerns, there is a need to develop biochemicals and bioproducts that offer realistic alternatives to their traditional counterparts. Biobased Lubricants and Greases addresses the lack of a centralized resource of information on lubricants and greases from renewable sources, providing a practical guide to the different biobased lubrication technologies available and their relative material benefits. Based on the authors' 17 years of research and development at the US National Ag-Based Lubricants (NABL) Center, it discusses the various types of vegetable oil available, comparing their characteristics, properties and benefits against those of typical petroleum oils as well as discussing common evaluation tests and giving examples and case studies of successful applications of biobased lubricants and greases.

Engineers, academics and students involved in tribological research as well as research related to the petroleum and agriculture industries will find Biobased Lubricants and Greases an invaluable source of information.

  • Provides a detailed review of the material benefits of plant-based lubricants that include a better viscosity index and lubricity even at extreme temperatures, lower flammability due to higher flash points and lower pour points
  • Covers the basic chemistry of vegetable oils as their profiles for use in lubricants and greases and environmental benefits
  • Include examples and case studies, focussing on an industrial application of lubrication technology undergoing current explosive growth in the global market
  •  Written in an accessible manner and illustrated throughout including a colour plate section
