« All Events

Continuing the success of nine consecutive European editions, ACI is proud to bring you the US Base Oils & Lubricants Summit, which will be taking place in Des Moines, IA on the 22nd and 23rd of August, 2018. The two-day event will bring together C-level executives and directors from across the lubricant supply chain to address current industry issues, explore new opportunities and network with peers.  Key presentation topics include analyses for the United States and global base oil and lubricant markets, base oil producers’ responses to the shifting market, strategies for ensuring supply and product quality in the global market, factors associated with bulk liquid logistics, addressing challenges with engine oil specifications like GF-6 and PC-11, dispelling misconceptions related to low-speed pre-ignition, the capabilities of cutting-edge biologically-sourced petroleum products and much, much more!

As regulations on the quality of both heavy-duty and passenger car motors oils become more strict, professionals across the entire lubricant spectrum can feel the impact. Join us and learn how leaders from base oil producers, lubricant blenders, additive manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers are confronting these challenges and pushing the boundaries of what modern lubricants are capable of.

In addition to a top-notch program full of exciting content and dynamic speakers, ACI will be offering an exclusive tour with Environmental Lubricants Manufacturing!  A leading manufacturer of biobased greases in the US, ELM uses a unique patented microwaved-based grease process to manufacture biobased greases along with a wide array of liquid lubricants.  Space is reserved on a “first come, first served” basis, so reserve your spot today!
