GreenTRIBOS

Project description

Better lubrication for a sustainable future

Friction and wear determine the consumption of energy. Reducing them using green lubrication is the most direct route to lowering energy consumption and pollution. The EU-funded GreenTRIBOS project is developing innovative technologies to decrease friction and wear through the work of 12 early-stage researchers. These researchers will develop integrative green concepts, their functional mechanisms, and lifecycle analyses to verify their sustainability. The project will measure the performance of machinery to reduce energy consumption, resource depletion and pollutants. The researchers will become the next generation of scientists and engineers to make the changes required for a sustainable engineering future.
