We are go­ing through the days when we need sol­i­dar­ity as a na­tion be­cause of the global New Type Coro­n­avirus ( COVID- 19) pan­demic that also af­fected our coun­try. While so­cial iso­la­tion con­tin­ues through­out the world, many peo­ple got se­verely sick or even lost their lives, cre­at­ing deep anx­i­ety, grief and stress in all of us. As COVID- 19 brings many sec­tors to a halt, it causes a de­cline in the global econ­omy. Un­for­tu­nately, the lu­bri­cant sec­tor, which op­er­ates on a global scale, was also un­fa­vor­ably af­fected by this cri­sis.

As the cover topic of this is­sue, To­tal Turkey Pazarlama, which has been op­er­at­ing in the lu­bri­cant sec­tor in Turkey for 30 years, has re­newed its ad­vanced oil anal­y­sis sys­tem ANAC se­ries. In ad­di­tion to in­tracity and in­ter­city trans­porta­tion, it of­fers new so­lu­tions tai­lored to the needs of fleets serv­ing the agri­cul­tural and con­struc­tion ma­chin­ery sec­tors.

Fuchs and BASF col­lab­o­rated for a holis­tic sus­tain­abil­ity as­sess­ment and more sus­tain­able lu­bri­cant prod­ucts.

Shell In­done­sia has dou­bled the pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity of its world- class lu­bri­cant oil blend­ing plant ( LOBP) lo­cated in Marunda Cen­tre, near

Jakarta. Upon com­ple­tion, the plant will be ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing up to 300 mil­lion litres of fin­ished lu­bri­cants an­nu­ally across the

9- hectare site. This ex­pan­sion will en­able Shell to meet the grow­ing de­mand of the do­mes­tic lu­bri­cants mar­ket.

It is ob­vi­ous that there will be pos­i­tive de­vel­op­ments in Turkey and in the world for our sec­tor. The new type Coro­n­avirus ( COVID- 19) showed all of us how im­por­tant co­op­er­a­tion is, that health comes first and that ap­pli­ca­ble cri­sis com­mu­ni­ca­tion plans need to be done in in­sti­tu­tions. Ac­cord­ing to the cur­rent con­di­tions we have de­cided to open a tem­po­rary dig­i­tal mem­ber­ship of our mag­a­zine to our dear au­di­ence. We hope that pretty soon this pan­demic and its dev­as­tat­ing im­pacts on peo­ple and economies will be over. In this re­gard, we be­lieve that the global re­sponse and ef­fort in fight­ing COVID- 19 will help to de­feat the virus and safe­guard peo­ple's lives, their liveli­hoods and the econ­omy.

Stay healthy, safe and en­joy read­ing!
