Welcome to the European Lubricating Grease Institute
The ELGI was established in May 1989 and is an independent, self-governing institute, financed solely by members. It is one of a group of scientific and technical institutes active in the field of tribology dealing with lubricating greases and associated products. The institute is involved in all aspects of this product group, particularly those concerning the technical, economic, ecological and legislative positions in Europe.
A number of working groups have been created to deal with important issues in the European grease market. Current topics include Railway Lubricants, Bio-based Greases, Fundamental Research, Food Industry Lubrication, Test Methods, Aerospace Greases, Education & Training and Grease & the Environment, Grease Shelf Life, REACH, Grease Cleanliness. Other groups are encouraged and the ELGI facilities are available for such activities.
2014 ELGI AGM Best Paper Award
The Best Paper Awards Panel found that two papers were worthy of the distinction of the best paper award and one overall winner was not possible to be selected. We are therefore pleased to announce that congratulations go to George Dodos and Siegfried Lucazeau who tied in this respect and we have decided to award both the honour of best paper.
“Combination of Novel Antioxidant System and Thermally Stable Esters for High Temperature Greases”
“A New Approach for Measuring Oxidation Stability of Lubricating Greases “
