Group of Participants
You are an engineer, practitioner, manager or supplier in the fields of mobile hydraulics, fluid production or in the construction industry.
Companies are increasingly obliged to introduce measures aimed at implementing sustainable processes and products. Legislation, for example, stipulates the use of environmentally compatible lubricants in public construction projects. In order to maintain competitiveness, the conversion of mobile hydraulic machines to bio-oil is an inevitable step.
The one-day seminar introduces biolubricants and highlights the performance characteristics and challenges of biohydraulic oils. On the user side, information on the conversion of mobile machines is presented, as well as the possibilities of environmental certification.
