Concawe Symposium, 18th March, Antwerp
This 13th bi-annual Concawe Symposium looked at the vision (2050) for the Refining industry and how the transition to low-carbon liquid fuels could be managed in the short- and long-term.
In particular, the Symposium looked at the refinery of the future, potential low-carbon technologies, and the contribution to the circular economy. The Symposium also helped understanding how the industry’s vision for low-carbon liquid fuels will impact key areas of interest of Concawe including air quality and water.
