The World Refining Association bridges the gap between traditional refining techniques and future technologies that will guarantee a sustainable future

There has never been a more exciting time in the refining industry as we adapt to changes in consumer demand, embracing tighter carbon-reduction legislation and identifying new products such as low-carbon hydrogen and biofuels.

With over 25 years in the industry, we understand that refiners must adapt quickly to change, however this requires continuous collaboration and conversation among the industry’s leading stakeholders.

Through our global event portfolio, we provide the ideal platform for networking and knowledge sharing to support you through these constant changes and to ensure your business remains investable in the long-term.
