Brussels, 1 February 2023
UEIL and ATIEL are pleased to announce a collaboration to develop a methodology to
calculate and report Product Carbon Footprints (PCFs) for Lubricants and Greases. Beginning
in January 2023, a working group has come together under the guidance of a consultant to
develop a harmonized cradle-to-gate (blenders / marketers exit gate) PCF methodology.
The aim of the PCF WG is to develop a common standard that can be used by the whole
lubricants industry, ensuring consistency and transparency throughout the entire supply chain.
It is anticipated that the PCF methodology for the Lubricants and Grease industry will be
published in the second half of 2023.
Mattia Adani, UEIL President highlighted that “To be able to determine Product Carbon
Footprints for Lubricants on a common, harmonized basis for the whole European Lubricants
Industry is a decisive capability that we want to develop jointly with ATIEL.”
Marco Digioia, ATIEL President stated that “This joint PCF harmonization effort is of
paramount importance in bringing a consistent approach to assess the environmental impacts
of our products in line with the objectives of the European Green Deal and globally”.
UEIL (the Union of the European Lubricants Industry) represents the interests of the lubricants
industry in Europe, with a special focus on SMEs and independent companies that produce lubricants
and metal processing fluids essential for the automotive and industrial sectors.
