Creating technological solutions for refining engineers through interactive collaboration

 

We were delighted to welcome engineers from across Europe for two days of interactive discussions at ERTC Ask the Experts on the biggest challenges currently facing the downstream sector. We also enjoyed a tour of OMV’s Schwechat Refinery, giving valuable context to the discussions.

This year, we expanded the programme to include the hot topics of renewable fuels, residue upgrading and water treatment, as well as returning to the themes of hydroprocessing, crude & vacuum distillation and FCC. With professional development in mind, we also hosted a very popular Pop Up Business School workshop on productivity. Plus, as always, the Ask the Experts social calendar was not forgotten! Attendees benefited from networking sessions including a river cruise through the beautiful city of Vienna.
