Join us at Keynote Presentation entitled “Vision 2050: A Pathway for the Evolution of the Refining Industry and Liquid Fuels” to hear from John Cooper, Director General, Fuels Europe, discussing:
It may be true that there is no silver bullet technology that can replace petroleum, but actually there are many technologies that can be used together to produce hydrocarbon fuels that are much lower in carbon intensity.
The refinery of the future can be a hub for these technologies, and also for collaboration with other industries in lower carbon technologies.
Through this strategy the refining and fuels industry can offer long term solutions to the big user groups of petroleum products, who are seeking answers to the decarbonisation challenge.
