How Automotive Cooling Fluids Are Stepping Up to Support Changes in the Automotive Industry
The automotive coolants market is experiencing changes, driven by shifts in automotive design technology, as well as the desire for longer fluid service life and better performance. Modern vehicles have engines that are downsized and have higher power density compared to conventional vehicles so that they are compact and can run faster. These engines function at higher temperatures and need to be supported by cooling fluids that can offer good heat removal and robust corrosion protection properties.
How the Growing Usage of Future Fuels Will Transform the Marine Lubricants Industry
The shipping industry has faced two major challenges from 2019–2022: the implementation of International Maritime Organization (IMO) norms on the maximum allowed sulfur concentration to be 0.5% in marine fuel, which are also known as IMO 2020 norms, from January 1, 2020, and COVID-19, which disrupted normal operations. The next challenges that the industry is expected to face are the decarbonization 2030 and 2050 norms. This article will focus on the aftermaths of the IMO 2020 norms and COVID-19 on the marine lubricants industry and how it is likely to evolve in the future as the shipping industry tries to meet the decarbonization targets.

These Are the Challenges Being Faced by the Global Wind Turbines Market
Global energy needs increase continually. Primary energy demand grew by 6% in 2021. However, this steep growth was due to the drop in energy demand in 2020. Besides overall demand growth, one key development is the push for clean energy or decarbonization. Several governments in developed and developing countries have expressed their intention to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels, including coal-fired power plants, and increase the use of renewable energy sources. Numerous countries have set net zero or carbon neutrality targets for 2050 and 2060, with a few setting mid-term targets for 2030 and 2040. To achieve these targets, countries will have to reduce their reliance on thermal power and increase the use of renewable sources like solar and wind. Hydropower was the leading source of renewable energy. However, the most commercially viable hydropower potential has already been unleashed. In contrast, there is enormous potential for wind and solar power yet to be exploited.
