Technology-driven Strategies for Petroleum Refineries to Achieve Profitability and Sustainability Goals: Greenhouse Gas Protocol ⸺ Scope 1

Despite calls to phase out fossil fuels amid persistent climate scrutiny and growing electric-vehicle penetration, global demand for transportation fuels and petrochemicals will remain significant in the coming decades. On the other hand, the refineries that make these products are urged to reduce GHG emissions.

The Greenhouse Gas Protocol, developed by the World Resources Institute and the Worldwide Business Council for Sustainable Development in September 2001, offers a comprehensive standardized approach to measure and manage emissions for businesses. The Protocol divides companies' emissions into three categories: Scope 1 (emissions from internal operations), Scope 2 (emissions from utilities consumed in business), and Scope 3 (emissions from other sources, e.g., customers burning refined products).

The upcoming Report will focus on short-term and long-term internal operations in meeting reduction targets for Scope 1 emissions as defined by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. It will be divided into four main parts.

  1. Environmental Requirements and Industry Compliance
  2. Market Challenges and Opportunities: Crude Oil, Fuels, and Petrochemicals
  3. Technology Advances to Meet Scope 1 Decarbonization Requirements
  4. Strategic Analyses and Recommendations

This report is a must-have for any refinery looking to stay ahead of the curve in a rapidly-changing industry as it identifies and discusses in detail the five technology pillars of decarbonization:

  • Energy Management for Cost Savings and Carbon Footprint Reduction
  • Electrification, Cogeneration/Combined Heat & Power/Integrated Gasification Integrated Cycle, and Zero/Low-carbon Fuels
  • Environmental Controls in Flue-Gas Releases, Flaring, and GHG Emissions
  • Unit Modifications via the Latest Technology Innovations
  • Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage

We are pleased to announce the publication of the report, accompanied by an exclusive limited-time promotional offer. A detailed brochure with a Table of Contents of this Report is available by sending a request to info@hydrocarbonpublishing.com.

We are uniquely qualified to undertake this critical task to serve refiners worldwide during the energy transition and business transformation.
