Technical Forum 7 - Emission Reduction and Recycling in Refining & Petrochemicals facilities

19 Sep 2023
Auditorium 5
F07 - Emission Reduction and Recycling in Refining & Petrochemicals Facilities

The world is in transition to a zero-carbon society toward 2050, and the petroleum refining and petrochemical industries are no exception. For this reason, the petroleum and petrochemical industries must promote the reduction of carbon emissions from plants and the effective use of carbon more strongly than ever before. In this forum, we will discuss the latest information on not only emission reduction by developing new processes and high-performance catalysts, but also material/chemical carbon recycling such as recovery of emitted carbon, reuse of petrochemical products and fuel synthesis by FT and other processes.
