The AFPM Annual Meeting, the world's premier refining meeting, assembling key executives, decision-makers, and technical experts from refining businesses, technology providers, contracting and consulting firms, and equipment manufacturers around the world, is going virtual in 2021, potentially connecting even more of our global network. The theme is: We are the Energy Future: Reliable, Affordable, Sustainable.

American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) is the leading trade association representing the makers of the fuels that keep Americans moving and the petrochemicals that are the essential building blocks for modern life. Our industries make life better, safer, healthier and — most of all — possible.


This session sets climate change impacts into a refining setting, describing how to baseline the current situation, and how various paths forward can be evaluated based on thoughtful scientific and economic analysis to determine what is appropriate as the situation (including various drivers) evolves. In addition, we will describe how some are taking bold steps across the value chain in this new carbon landscape, including what specific aspects of refinery operations could be approached, and how some have already moved forward with biofuel production, enhanced energy management and other creative and evolving approaches.
