Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, we lose sight of the scale and impact of these markets. Global base oil production is roughly 38 million metric tons, using an average GHG value for mineral oil of 1 kg of C02/kg base oil applied to the full production it results in 38 Billion kg of CO2 emissions every year. If we were to eliminate these emissions it would be the equivalent of 1.8 Billion trees. Lubricants offer an even bigger opportunity by utilizing their performance to improve efficiency while in use as well as their biodegradable and toxicological profiles.
This depends on your corporate goals and the goals of your customers. Renewable engine oil can be a powerful tool to reduce GHG emissions. For lubricant manufacturers, raw materials account for ~90% of their GHG emissions with base oil being the largest raw material. Any lubricant company with targets of achieving major reductions in GHG will have to make renewable engine oils as they are the largest volume products. For users, Novvi performance can bring additional GHG savings through fuel economy improvements and extended drain intervals.
Yes, fuels have a much larger CO2 impact than lubricants but this does not mean we should ignore lubricants. We must do everything we can to reduce CO2 for products where we have a sustainable solution. The automotive industry is driving fuel economy and the shift to electric and hydrogen-powered vehicles to address the fuels issue. Lubricants play a significant role in initial and retained fuel economy, this fuel savings opportunity can have a substantially bigger CO2 impact than the fluid itself. It is the lubricants industry’s job to address the CO2 footprint of its components. All products are going to come under CO2 restrictions no matter how big or small to meet the world’s needs towards carbon reduction.
