Recognising the value of sustained energy efficiency for business, ExxonMobil states how usage of high-performance lubricants can lead to significant energy savings.
The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) recently unveiled an independent study on ¨Enhanced Energy Efficiency in Industrial Lubrication.¨ According to the study´s findings, energy efficient lubricants help achieve productivity improvement across various applications in industrial sector along with reduction in carbon emissions. According to ExxonMobil´s Energy Outlook Report 2040, energy demand in 2040 is expected to double from 2010 levels, and the rate of increase is anticipated to be even higher in countries like India that have a rapidly expanding industrial business landscape. ChimaEze, Global Industrial Brand Manager, ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants said, ¨The industrial sector is a major consumer of energy, accounting for about half of all the electricity consumed around the world - and for about 30 percent of primary energy use. One opportunity for energy conservation that is often overlooked in industrial facilities is the technology behind the lubricant used.¨ He further added, ¨Using energy efficient lubricants will enable manufacturing facilities to operate at maximum efficiency at optimal cost. Typically companies that upgrade their lubricants and reliability practices have been able to document a significant reduction in power requirements along with achieving productivity improvement and reduction in carbon emissions across various applications in the industrial sector.¨
Glen Sharkowicz, Asia Pacific Industrial Lubricants Marketing Manager, ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants said, ¨ExxonMobil´s leadership in innovation is accentuated by commitment to sustainability which demands an efficient use of resources - human, environmental and operational while energy efficiency remains one of the most visible and discussed sustainable business practices. Mobil lubricants not only delivers exceptional, long-lasting performance and protection, but also feature valuable energy efficiency benefits. With our comprehensive strategy, referred to as Advancing Productivity, we leverage our technology leadership and application expertise to help companies enhance their operational safety, achieve their environmental care-related goals, and maximize productivity thus delivering energy efficiency benefits to our customers¨.
ExxonMobil offers a broad line of advanced lubricating oils and greases that can help increase equipment operating efficiency and engine fuel economy, and help contribute to reduced energy and resource use, lower emissions and cost savings for industrial equipment, machinery, passenger and commercial vehicle engines. Mobil Industrial Lubricants is geared to meet and exceed industry requirements through a suite of step-up technology lubricants designed to potentially deliver energy efficiency benefits.
According to Shankar Karnik, Mobil SHC Brand Manager & Energy Advisor, ExxonMobil Lubricants, ¨There is a need for companies across industries to perceive energy efficiency through a strategic lens and align it to their core business objectives.In almost every sector, we´renow seeing companiesachieve success by creating or deploying new technologies that use energy more efficiently, and using synthetic and energy-efficient lubricants can help achieve those results. In the Indian industry, we are already working with various stakeholders to apply energy-saving lubricants to reduce industrial energy demand.¨
