Alotaibi, J. G. and Yousif, B. F. (2016) Biolubricants and the potential of waste cooking oil. In: Ecotribology, research developments. Materials Forming, Machining and Tribology. Springer, Switzerland, pp. 125-143. ISBN 978-3-319-24005-3


In the current decade, development of recycle, renewable, and sustainable products to replace fossil products is an essential and important matter from industrial,environment, and academic point of views. The excessive usage of Petroleum-based oils significantly contributes to the pollution of the environment and had caused environmental pollution and awareness from the environmental sectors. Researchers start exploring an alternative oil from natural resource aiming to replace the fossil oil and this becomes the main ambitious of many researchers, environmental, and government bodies. In this chapter, a comprehensive literature review is introduced and several issues are addressed with regards of the usage of newly developed lubricants that are based on vegetable oils. Furthermore, it is exploring the potential of using waste cooking oil as lubricant for tribological applications.
