At the seminar, experts in industrial lubricant products from Shell Thailand and Shell Australia provided information to partners on lubricant technology and presented Shell’s wide range of lubricant products, which play important roles in the development of the cement industry. Providing lubricant products that match the specifications of clients’ machinery improves efficiency and extends working life, leading to a reduction in the total cost of ownership. This help drives the production process of the cement industry to the next level.

Veethara Trakulboon, Executive Director, Lubricants Business, The Shell Company of Thailand Limited, said: “As a leading company in energy and fuel innovation, Shell understands that the cement industry is one of the main drivers of Thailand’s infrastructure, including rail lines, roads, expressways, and residential and commercial buildings. This infrastructure plays an important role in driving the country’s economy and improving the quality of life for all Thais. For this reason, Shell is committed to pursuing innovation and technology and places emphasis on working closely with original equipment manufacturers and conducting product testing in real-world conditions with clients across industries. We also provide comprehensive consultations on lubricant products. This includes hosting the seminar on the topic of, 'From Increasing Cement Plant Reliability to Sustainable Value Creation', to strengthen our partners’ businesses by sharing our knowledge and expertise, which partners can then use to enhance their business further. Our success is recognized by Kline & Company, a global leading market research company, which has listed Shell as the number one global lubricants manufacturer for 12 consecutive years”.

The Shell Company of Thailand Limited is also focused on reducing CO2 emissions throughout its lubricant supply chain. Shell lubricant products are developed using the company’s patented PurePlus Technology, which helps reduce emissions and is more environmentally friendly. The company is also piloting the use of lubricant drums at Shell Helix Oil Change Plus sites in place of product cans, in order to reduce waste from individual containers.

“We hope that the seminar confirms Shell’s commitment to developing innovation, working with our partners, and taking care of society and the environment. These efforts will help power success for the industrial sector and serve as a driving force for the country’s sustainable economic growth, which is in line with Shell’s mission to ‘Make Life’s Journeys Better’”, Veethara concluded.
