The Green Tribology is a new concept that was suggested in 2009. We discuss the scope of the new discipline and the publications on Green Tribology which are to appear in 2010 and 2011. The three areas relevant to Green Tribology are: (i) biomimetic and self-lubricating materials / surfaces (ii) biodegradable and environment-friendly lubricants (iii) tribology of renewable and/or sustainable sources of energy. The hypothesis is that these three areas can benefit from each other and, therefore, it is justified to combine these three areas into the novel field of Green Tribology. We discuss recent theoretical, modeling, and experimental research in these areas of interest and present theoretical, modeling, and experimental results in the area of environment-friendly tribology.
