Abstract [en]

We frequently find “EAL” (environmentally acceptable lubricant or relevant such as “environmentally friendly,” “environmentally adapted,” “environmental benign,” “biodegradable,” “ecological,” “green,” in the title and keywords of tribology papers. It intimates "something good for environment" and may catch the readers' attention. However, one might feel unease because the definition of these terms is unclear. These terms are too loosely used with the authors’ satisfaction in most cases. Of course, lubrication engineering contributes to protect global environment by improving energy efficiency and prolonging machine life through reducing friction and wear. In this regard, lubrication itself is definitely one of the “green” technologies. This led a simple question – why adjectives such as “environmental” are used with lubrication? The unrivalled reference book in tribology defines “environmentally friendly lubricants” as “readily biodegradable in nature” [1]. We agree with it, but shall ask "is biodegradability enough for protection of global environment?" This motivated us to propose unambiguous criteria for EAL.
