In the automobile and earthmoving market place, consumer pressure is creating a demand for more environmentally considerate products. One aspect of this definition is biodegradability.
In the forestry and farming industries where lubricant losses and spillages are recognised as a significant potential hazard, the use of these products is now widespread and in terms of environmental protection, the benefits are multiple.
This paper discusses technical developments based on vegetable oils, including an assessment of additive requirements to meet performance needs. It also reviews necessary work to define other aspects of performance.
