About ATC – Additive Technical Committee

We discuss topics of a technical and statutory nature which were a concern to our industry

The Technical Committee of Petroleum Additive Manufacturers in Europe (ATC) was established in 1974 for member companies to discuss topics of a technical and statutory nature which were a concern to our industry.

The objectives of ATC

  1. 1

    To provide a forum for additive companies to meet and discuss developments of a technical and/or regulatory nature, concerning the application of additives in fuels, lubricants, service fluids and other petroleum products.

  2. 2

    To ensure that communication is effectively co-ordinated with the appropriate international technical groups and organisations within Europe, and outside Europe for global issues and with ACC in particular.

  3. 3

    To participate in appropriate technical work, actively and with increasing resources, with associated industry and regulatory organisations or groups.

  4. 4

    To ensure that products and technologies are widely seen to demonstrate "fit for purpose", by managing and funding (ATC's 25% share of) the CEC organisation, and thereby enabling CEC to develop test processes for our industry which are appropriate and necessary.

  5. 5

    To continue collaboration with the petroleum and automotive industries, so that member companies can develop products and technologies that are seen to contribute towards

    • The optimal provision of service fluids, fuels and lubricants

    • The solution/mitigation of identified or anticipated problems of vehicle or engine operation

    • Cost-effective compliance with present and future environmental regulation.
