Call for presentations:

"Engine Technology" TBD

The SAIT will present an afternoon seminar on “Engine Technology“, at Science Park, Northway, Kelvin. We are inviting interested persons to submit papers for this event. The seminar is intended to bring together all parties interested in this important and topical subject.

Engine technology and regulations are changing rapidly, impacting the lubricant technology (additives and base oils) and as a result formulation and environmental requirements are being focused upon.
