Global Biolubricants Market 2010-2018

The term biolubricants refer to all those lubricants that are both readily biodegradable and are non-toxic to the environment as well as humans.
Biolubricants can be:

  • Plant-oil based
  • Derived from mineral oils

Many eco-labels, rules and regulations are used to distinguish biolubricants from the conventional ones. Extensive research has been undertaken in the field if biochemistry in the past few years that has catapulted the field of eco-friendly products and has led to the development of more efficient products as compared with the conventional products made from mineral oils and petroleum products.

Biolubricants has emerged as a good alternative to the mineral and petroleum based products that come at a cost of environmental degradation. Biolubricants, also commonly called bio-lubes or bio-based lubricants are made from a variety of plant oils such as rapeseed, palm, sunflower, soybean, coconut and canola.

  • History:

The use of plant and animal fats and oils by man dates back to ancient times. The chemical composition of oils and fats and their physical and chemical properties have allowed thme to be used as fuel, lubricants and personal use. The sources of natural oils and fats are also numerous, comprising of animal, marine and plants. The usefulness of oils and fats is determined by their chemical properties, which differ according to their composition of various fatty acids and esters.

The current boom in use of natural oils and fats for purposes other than personal use is precisely driven by the emphasis on environmental conservation. Also, plant oils are better than mineral and petroleum based oils in terms of biodegradability, are less toxic and renewable. Due to these facts, attention has been focused on the development of technologies that use plant and animal oils and fats for the production of biofuels and industrial lubricants, as they are non-toxic and renewable.

Use of plant and animal oils and fats in industrial applications, especially as lubricants, has been in practice for many years now. Economic concerns and environmental issues first paved way for this technology to come into existence. Now, plant-oils based lubricants are used majorly also because they show excellent lubricity. Plant oils have different properties by virtue of their unique chemical structures. Plant oils have superior viscosity indices and great anticorrosion properties, which are as a result of the high affinity plant oils have towards metallic surfaces. In addition to these, their high flame points also render them a property of non-flammability.

Demand for plant oils in the lubricant industry is expected to observe tremendous rise in the future due to their non-polluting, non-toxic, renewable nature. They are also abundant and cheap as compared with mineral and petroleum based oils.

  • Applications:

Applications of biolubricants are as abundant as the number of industries that require constant use of lubricants in every-day processes, i.e., almost every industry. But the best application is in the field where machines loose oil directly into the environment and the machines that are used in areas near water. Examples include railroad flanges, cables, two-stroke engines, dust suppressants and marine automobiles.

Compared to synthetic or petroleum-based lubricants, using biolubricants have the following effects and benefits:

  • A clean, less-toxic work environment, fewer skin problems to people who come in direct contact of hydraulic systems, engines and other machine parts.
  • Safer use due to inflammable nature, constant viscosity and less vapor and oil mist production.
  • Higher boiling points leads to fewer emissions
  • High biodegradability results in fewer ill-effects to the environment.
  • Cost effective due to reduced costs of maintenance, disposal and storage.

Reduction in pollution levels from leakage in hydraulic systems, engines and brake lines.
