Assessment and Implementation of Cleaner Production Practices in Petroleum Lubricants Industry Value Chain in Zimbabwe

Ignatio Madanhire, Kumbi Mugwindiri

This paper is a study of Cleaner Production Assessment in the Petroleum Lubricants Industry value chain done in Zimbabwe. It focuses on opportunities available to reduce negative environmental impacts of lubricants throughout the value chain from blending to disposal. Effort was made to investigate existing cleaner production practices by manufacturers and users. Issues on base oil substitution, minimizing oil losses during and after manufacturing, raw material and energy consumption reduction, and environmentally friendly used oil disposal were reviewed as way forward for effective Cleaner Production for the industry.This study acts as a resource for managers in the lubricants industry both manufacturers and consumers to understand Cleaner Production aspects and incorporate CP practices in their operations for regulatory compliance, environmental protection and business competitiveness in terms of savings.

Keywords: blending, lubricants, cleaner production, savings, disposal
