Webinars by FuelsEurope

FuelsEurope is delighted to present you its webinar series on “Understanding the role of low-carbon liquid fuels in enabling climate-neutral transport”, which took place between 31 May and 14 June 2021.

The ambition of the European Union is to be climate neutral by 2050. The European refining industry supports the same ambition. Our industry is transforming, and we have developed a comprehensive pathway of how, together with our partners, we can contribute to meeting the 2050 climate neutrality objective.

In the transport sector, low-carbon liquid fuels, also called ReFuels, will play a critical role in the energy transition and in achieving carbon neutrality in all transport modes. Therefore, alongside electrification and hydrogen technologies, low-carbon liquid fuels will remain essential beyond 2050, bringing important benefits to the European economy and society.

To better illustrate these benefits, FuelsEurope, in cooperation with external partners, proposed a series of webinars enabling deep dives in key aspects such as sustainability, availability, efficiency, affordability, technology and policy.

Each session proposes a 75 to 90 minutes deep dive in the topic with experts and key stakeholders. Following the introductions and presentations by three experts, industry or sector representative, the moderator opens the floor to the audience for a compelling Q&A session to answer all your questions.

The programme featured sessions about low-carbon liquid fuels addressing:

Session 1 – The benefits of an EU Strategy for liquid fuels?
