Estimating the marginal CO2 intensities of EU refinery products
Report no. 1/17: Estimating the CO2 emissions associated with production of individual oil products is challenging inasmuch as they are produced simultaneously through a combination of interrelated processes.
This report proposes a new methodology that utilises the specific features of the Linear Programming (LP) technique used to model refineries to produce a consistent set of CO2 intensities for all refinery products. The methodology is described in detail and applied to a study case reflecting EU refining in 2010. Results are compared to figures obtained in previous Concawe work.
