NORTH AMERICAN REFINING TECHNOLOGY CONFERENCE
The North American Refining Technology Conference (NARTC) is the World Refining Association’s brand-new regional refining event with a core focus on connecting US refineries with the cutting-edge technologies that will determine the role of refining in the Energy Transition.
NARTC will focus on the concept of “Sustainable Refining” by analysing Refineries’ strategies on decarbonisation & digitalisation and act as a forum for North American refiners to set the agenda and collaborate on the sector’s short to mid-term future. The gathering will also provide the industry with a deep analysis of the current outlook for US refiners and will aim to define the long-term role of downstream in the Energy Transition.
