Posted:

GRUNDY CENTER (KWWL)-- A local company that makes bio-based lubricants and greases will soon be featured no the History Channel.  Environmental Lubricants Manufacturing, Inc., (ELM) of Grundy Center will showcase its new microwave grease manufacturing technology on the show Modern Marvels.  The show will air January 21st at 8:00 p.m. CST / 9:00 p.m. EST. 

KWWL visited ELM in September 2010 just before History Channel crews arrived to film the upcoming episode.

"The microwave based grease is one of the most innovative and game-changing manufacturing technologies in the lubricating grease industry today," said Alan Burgess, ELM's manager of operations.  "Tests have shown that the microwave process is safer, faster, more cost effective, and produces a more stable base lubricant."

ELM teamed with researchers at the University of Northern Iowa National Ag-Based Lubricants Center and AMTek, a Cedar Rapids, IA-based industrial microwaves manufacturer that built and tested a scaled-up reactor to make production quantity batches of grease.
