In spite of that, we can’t forget that lubricants may
be harmful and dangerous and may cause long-termadverse effects on biota.

A small drop of lubricant can contaminate a large
quantity of groundwater and render it undrinkable.
Despite the efforts being made to recover, regenerateand re-refine lubricants, it is recognised that morethan five million tons of lubricants are not collectedand are disposed of in the environment.
