The SME RS Clare & Co Ltd, one of the market leaders for the supply of advanced track lubricants to the international rail industry, has developed a bio-lubricant for that application through a partnership with the Carnot institute LISA.
The interest of bio-lubricant makes sense when knowing that 30% of the lubricants used in industry end up in the ecosystem. And lubricants based on mineral oils represent 95% of the European market (2005 data).
The developed lubricants respond to ever more pressing issues of the markets in terms of cost reduction, reduced wear of tracks, saving on maintenance, reduced costs, while ensuring high technical performance. This partnership has enabled the SME RS Clare to consolidate a strategy for sustainable and profitable growth, despite a difficult economic environment.
