Transportation Additives — Promoting Cleaner Travel

India is the third largest automotive market. Passenger car and commercial vehicle sales are growing, and motorcycles remain a critical transportation choice for commuters.

Home Care — Meeting the Needs of a Growing Middle Class

India’s vibrant middle class is seeking better and more sustainable personal and home cleaning products. Lubrizol is leveraging our knowledge of the market to meet those needs. As families in India seek detergent bars for laundry and dishes, we’ve helped reduce deforestation by replacing palm oil derivatives and improved the structural integrity of these bars to ensure they last longer and reduce waste.

Our Commitment to Sustainability

With every growth initiative, Lubrizol remains committed to a more sustainable future—minimizing our footprint while maximizing our positive impact on a cleaner, better world.
