global energy landscape today is marked with numerous challenges. Depleting
resources, increased energy demand and wasteful use of fuel are some of the key
concerns that tend to lower the output of our industries, equipment and
machinery. The need for judicious use of energy resources and maximisation of
fuel economy across application streams is the need of the hour. Lubricants are
an important element in the larger picture of energy efficiency. Keeping this
in mind, at Shell, we give complete consideration to the energy scenarios and
carefully design our lubricants”, said Dr. Felix Guerzoni, Global Product
Application Specialist, Shell Global Solutions.
technological aspect, Akhil Jha, Vice President – Technical, Shell Lubricants
India said, "The global energy scenario today is influenced by multiple
factors, both technological and non-technological. Some of these issues are
product & hardware technologies, application & process engineering,
rapidly increasing demand & shrinking supply base of conventional sources
of energy. Political, economic, social and environmental factors also cast an
influence on these. A comprehensive thought leadership forum such as Shell
Lubricants Global Lecture Series, provides the best of the minds from diverse
sections of the industry to come together and debate future possibilities to
address these challenges.”
