ESF NA 2022 – North America Energy & Sustainability Forum

Today success is no longer just measured on safe and profitable operations, but also the delivery of energy and operational efficiency whilst demonstrating a commitment to ESG and circularity.

As North American refiners and petrochemical producers position themselves for a low carbon transition, and with no silver bullet to achieve net zero, the industry must form a coherent approach to take advantage of all opportunities. The challenge to invent new technologies, new supply chains, new value chains and new markets has never been so complex.

Following the success of ESF and ESF MENA, we are excited to announce ESF North America, the latest in our series of dedicated conferences to support the collaborations, discussions, and development of a sustainable energy future in which the oil and gas downstream industry continues to play a leading role.

  • Through interactive panel discussions, presentations and case studies, ESF NA will:
  • Prepare the industry for tomorrow through market outlooks, future fuel predictions and transition preparation
  • Explore the latest zero emissions technologies, including CCS and hydrogen, essential to achieving deep decarbonisation targets
  • Present the latest hydroprocessing catalysts and process technologies to support the evolution of the region’s refiners through increased flexibility and (product slate) diversification
  • Discuss the opportune pathways and implementation roadmaps for the industry
  • Present case studies and strategies on how companies are implementing technologies to reduce the carbon footprint of their operations and assets
  • Showcase the production and development of new low-carbon and alternative fuels
  • Help you transition to a Circular Economy through waste (plastics) recycling and conversion technologies
  • Explore the latest digital enabling technologies shaping future smart refining and petrochemicals production

ESF 2022 – Europe Energy & Sustainability Forum

The energy transition is a pathway, not a moment in the story. As the transition accelerates and we look to 2022, so does the complexity, challenging the industry to invent new technologies, new supply chains, new value chains and new markets, all with collaboration at the heart.

Through interactive panel discussions, presentations and case studies, ESF 2022 will explore:


  • DECARBONISATION STRATEGIES & DEPLOYMENT – Our keynote session will look at how the industry can be enabled and supported to move as fast as it can, in the technology directions that’s best for them and wider society. It will present opportunities for refiners and producers to carbon base line their assets and accelerate the adoption of low carbon technologies. What is achievable short term through the delivery of energy and operational efficiency to minimise carbon footprint and operating costs
  • H2 – THE KEY ENABLER TO THE FUTURE OF THE DOWNSTREAM INDUSTRY & THE UTILISATION OF CO2 – Europe’s politicians are pushing hard for green hydrogen but for the industry to deliver within the desired timeline, we need enough renewable power for the electrification of crackers along with the development of a non-energy intensive route to produce olefins. Until then fossil based blue hydrogen, using carbon capture and sequestration, remains a proven key mechanism to allow the industry to reduce its emissions. This session will explore the latest low and zero carbon technologies and projects essential to achieving deep decarbonisation targets.
  • CIRCULARITY – With such expectations from stakeholders on Scope 3, how can we get more of our products/services to be circular? Innovation, regulation, integration, and infrastructure are all needed to ensure that waste becomes a valuable material that comes back into the chain. There is a big innovation challenge for the whole industry to make these technologies scalable and affordable, especially to be successful by 2050.
    This session will help you scale and commercialise circularity, by working with the entire value chain and deploying the best technologies on the market to help close the loop.
  • TRANSITION & DIVERSIFY – The transition is a journey with many steps, not a competition or challenge between technology or colour. Cooperation and collaboration are needed between different sources of energy and the many opportunities available today must be embraced in parallel. This session will look at the latest conversion technologies to support the evolution of refiners and producers through increased flexibility and (product slate) diversification, including the production and development of new bio, renewable and e-fuels.
