Fuel & Lubricants

Explore the world of fuel and lubricants and all the new and varied options available to power engines today and in the future

We think outside the box when it comes to researching into the possible fuels that can be burned in all different kinds of automobile engines from normal gasoline and diesel to biofuels, gaseous and fuel mixtures, seeking solutions that provide efficient combustion and reduced emissions. In particular we are concerned with fuel characterization, bio fuel production and quality control. Our work in lubricants is geared towards research and testing of biologically produced oil and how lubricants and be used in engines.


We are trusted to find solutions by the top OEMs and organisations

We have significant experience in offering research services to large OEMs regarding the effects of additives and biofuels on petrol and diesel engines and researching into engine durability, performance and safety. We have also undertaken projects regarding the effect of fully synthetic fuels as well as undertaking several projects for the fuel giant, CONCAWE.
