Nowadays, with the dominance of changes and development of vehicle construction, it is impossible to produce a fully-valuable lubricant used in the automotive industry without the need to use appropriate refining additives. As part of the project co-financed by the European Funds (Innomoto competition organized by NCBiR), the company Chemnaft Sp. z o.o. S.K.A. conducts research on the development of lubricants based on the components obtained in the process of recycling waste lithium-ion batteries/accumulators and food waste in the form of cooking oil. During the development of battery recycling technology, the aspect of obtaining components improving the functional properties of lubricants was analyzed, among others graphite, lithium compounds, copper. The possibility of producing an EP-type additive by sulphurizing the obtained methyl esters of the cooking oil was also investigated. The paper presents the results of research on selected functional properties of lubricating compositions containing acquired components. Rated, among others lubricating, anti-corrosion, anti-foaming, thermooxidative properties of the composition.
