More Than an Oil Change: Industrial Lubricants and Electric Vehicles

The move from internal combustion engines (ICE) to battery powered electric vehicles (EV) will not just reduce our reliance on automotive lubricants like motor oil, but also affect the use of industrial lubricants required for manufacturing EVs and other more sustainable propulsion systems.

Join Neil Canter, Tech Advisor for the Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers, as he discusses why EVs require less lubricants for both manufacturing and maintenance and indicates that the chemical industry will need to adapt to a decrease in demand for motor oil and other lubricants commonly used in the manufacture of ICE vehicles.

This ACS Webinar is moderated by David Constable, Science Director of the Green Chemistry Institute at ACS and is co-produced with the ACS Green Chemistry Institute.

What You Will Learn

  • Why battery electric vehicles are more efficient and generate fewer emissions than internal combustion engine powered vehicles
  • Why battery electric vehicles require fewer parts simplifying their manufacture
  • How the chemical industry can adapt to reduced demand for industrial lubricants from the automotive industry
