The lubricants product development group within Shell are looking for ideas to make their products more sustainable.

This covers both sustainable packaging, the sustainability of the lubricant (either greater use of bio-renewable materials and/or re-use of recycled base oils/additives) and also how to make the production of such lubricants more energy efficient. 

Any non-confidential summaries of novel ideas in these areas would be of potential interest.
