Your landfill got indigestion? How about your landfill’s stationary engine? No?
Well, anyways, Fuels & Lubes (F&L) Asia awarded Lubrizol’s SG9L60 stationary gas additive the “Product Development of the Year” award.
The award was presented at a ceremony during F&L Week for innovations in the fuels and lubricants industry that improve processes, efficiency and ecological use.
“We are honored to be recognized for our product development efforts. Bringing Lubrizol® SG9L60 to the stationary gas market provided our customers with a less expensive and more effective lubricant solution to a challenging issue they have experienced for decades,” says Al Haas, Lubrizol global product manager, Stationary Gas.
Lubrizol® SG9L60 additive technology is formulated specifically for controlling silica deposits that develop from high levels of siloxanes in landfill and digester gases. Deposits can lead to high oil consumption, pre-ignition, detonations and excess wear in modern, lean-burn stationary gas engines.
Haas continues, “Lubrizol is committed to working with our OEM and industry contacts in the landfill market to understand their needs and deliver dedicated, application-specific lubricant solutions like Lubrizol® SG9L60, which provides engine durability benefits and overall maintenance cost savings.
Supported by a market knowledgeable team with 90 years of experience in the stationary gas business, Lubrizol continues to be committed to and invest in this growth market to deliver proven performance to our stationary gas partners.”
