 Project objective

The Harolbio 2.0 project aims at introducing a next generation of metalworking fluids obtained from vegetable base oils able to disrupt the market of industrial lubricants. Harolbio 2.0 will then allow to establish a green value chain for the supply, use, recovery and regeneration of vegetable metalworking fluids, bringing several economic and environmental benefits to the entire metalworking industry value chain. The market of industrial metalworking fluids is still dominated by mineral oil base lubricants. It is estimated that metal industry demands over 36 million tons per years of these. The massive use of mineral lubricants is associated to a series of burdens which affect the labour safety, performances and overall sustainability. The use of traditional lubricants is closely concerned with a very unsafe and risky environment, illness conditions, environmental burdens, high cost of equipment maintenance and very high waste disposal cost. Nevertheless, metalworking fluids are deemed vital to many industries given the growing complexity of metalworking processes and machineries toward numeric control, subtractive and additive manufacturing applications. Despite the many issues related the use of synthetic oils, and the recent attempts to use vegetable components, a real alternative is not yet available. The use of vegetable oil represents a very promising alternative for the metalworking industry at whole. It has been demonstrated how Harolbio (TRL 6), developed by Bellini S.p.A, can overcome most of the issues related to traditional fluids thus reducing operator hazards, environmental burdens and increasing operation efficiency without compromising the quality of products. Bellini intends therefore to complete a first phase of techno-economical assessment to evaluate the suitability of a largescale uptake of Harolbio 2.0.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "HAROLBIO 2.0" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
