As Wendell Berry once said, "The Earth is what we all have in common." Earth Day is the only secular festival on the globe. This celebration aims to thank mother earth for nurturing us and giving us all it has. People swear to plant trees, restore the earth, and not exploit the environment. Every year we see many initiatives taken to save the earth on this day but do we really achieve it? Now we need to measure the changes after taking specific steps. From a recent survey, we can see that ten out of the 15 most polluted cities in the world are from India.

It has not been six months since all the heads of 197 countries attended the COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland. The primary concern of the billion-dollar event was to maintain the earth's temperature. As the theme of Earth day for this year suggests, ‘Invest in our Planet’, we need to invest instead of paying later for getting fresh air, pure water, organic food, etc.

Do you know Contaminated oils are very harmful to the environment? There are two aspects to this. The exploitation of natural resources to get new oil and the Disposal of the used oil. As we know, lubricants come from limited reserves. Exploiting natural resources has significant environmental impacts, causing irreversible damage to human life.

According to Oil Care, just 1 liter of oil can contaminate 1 million liters of water. Oil pollution has a devastating effect on the water environment if it spreads over the surface in a thin layer that stops oxygen from getting to the plants and animals that live in the water. Unfortunately, it all applies with lube oil too.

Why not reuse the oil? Reusing can bring great benefits to the environment. Oil reclamation is an environmentally friendly process that involves filtration, dehydration, and readditization to recover the properties of the lubricants and extend their useful life.

We should invest in spreading awareness to bring the change. We, at Minimac, working towards bringing a markable change to nature. Fortunately, we work in cleaning, filtering, and reconditioning oil. We filter tons of lube oils in a year. Recycling and reducing impurities in lubricant not only reduces the operating cost of a machine and increases its productivity but also contributes to saving the environment.

Minimac Systems over the years has become equipped with almost all the technologies which are required for contamination control in lubricants. As a part of its sustainability strategy, the company focuses on the fast development of future technologies based on the dynamism of the industry and the anticipated changes. On this earth day, let’s pledge to reduce the negative impact on the globe.
