In October 2013 ATC are launching an updated website, with a format that is designed not just to be more attractive but also of major benefit for lubricant and fuel companies, OEMs and regulators.
ATC have recently given two major presentations:
- in September, and in conjunction with ATIEL, to ACEA members to ensure better understanding of the Codes of Practice and EELQMS (European Engine Lubricants Quality Management System); and
- in October to the ICIS Middle Eastern Base Oils and Lubricants Conference in Dubai, with a wide-ranging introduction of all ATC's current activities.
It is understood that both presentations, which can be found on the website, were well received.
Also launched in October was a revised version of a document which many have, over the years, found a useful primer on fuel additives. Hard copies of the new Document 113: "Fuel Additives - Use and Benefits" are available from the secretariat, but it can also be viewed and read in its entirety on this website.
The main committee meet next in Schwetzingen in Germany on 22nd-23rd October.
