21–23 March 2022
Energy & Sustainability Forum
Decarbonising the Downstream Industry
Welcome to the 2nd Annual ESF 2022 – Energy & Sustainability Forum
Following the great success of the inaugural ESF held virtually in June 2021, Euro Petroleum Consultants is pleased to announce the Energy & Sustainability Forum 2022 will take place from 21-23 March in Berlin.
The transition is a pathway, not a moment in the story. As the transition accelerates and we look to 2022, so does the complexity, challenging the industry to invent new technologies, new supply chains, new value chains and new markets, all with collaboration at the heart.
With no one single solution to achieve net zero, the industry must form a coherent approach to take advantage of all opportunities including hydrogen, liquid fuels, circular economy, and clean and reliable energy. Meeting climate change neutrality is a science and technology challenge, and as a science and engineering-based industry, the downstream industry is well equipped to do that.
Through interactive panel discussions, presentations and case studies, ESF 2022 will explore:
DECARBONISATION STRATEGIES & DEPLOYMENT - Our keynote session will look at how the industry can be enabled and supported to move as fast as it can, in the technology directions that’s best for them and wider society. It will present opportunities for refiners and producers to carbon base line their assets and accelerate the adoption of low carbon technologies. What is achievable short term through the delivery of energy and operational efficiency to minimise carbon footprint and operating costs
H2 - THE KEY ENABLER TO THE FUTURE OF THE DOWNSTREAM INDUSTRY & THE UTILISATION OF CO2 - Europe’s politicians are pushing hard for green hydrogen but for the industry to deliver within the desired timeline, we need enough renewable power for the electrification of crackers along with the development of a non-energy intensive route to produce olefins. Until then fossil based blue hydrogen, using carbon capture and sequestration, remains a proven key mechanism to allow the industry to reduce its emissions. This session will explore the latest low and zero carbon technologies and projects essential to achieving deep decarbonisation targets.
CIRCULARITY - With such expectations from stakeholders on Scope 3, how can we get more of our products/services to be circular? Innovation, regulation, integration, and infrastructure are all needed to ensure that waste becomes a valuable material that comes back into the chain. There is a big innovation challenge for the whole industry to make these technologies scalable and affordable, especially to be successful by 2050.
This session will help you scale and commercialise circularity, by working with the entire value chain and deploying the best technologies on the market to help close the loop.
TRANSITION & DIVERSIFY - The transition is a journey with many steps, not a competition or challenge between technology or colour. Cooperation and collaboration are needed between different sources of energy and the many opportunities available today must be embraced in parallel. This session will look at the latest conversion technologies to support the evolution of refiners and producers through increased flexibility and (product slate) diversification, including the production and development of new bio, renewable and e-fuels.
Speaking slots are available in the conference agenda in the following areas:
- Circularity including mechanical and chemical recycling
- Blue and green hydrogen
- Digitizing decarbonisation
- Utilization of CO2
- Re-configuration and conversion technologies
- Renewable/bio fuels production

VP Manufacturing MEA & AP for Refining & Petrochemicals, TotalEnergies
The ESF 2021 has brought together all stakeholders in our downstream industry. Euro Petroleum Consultants professionally organized a very comprehensive agenda and platform on which there is a great open exchange of insights and new developments that help all industry stakeholders prepare better for a sustainable future.
President & CEO, Lummus Technology
EPC goes future. Driven by the circumstances this year, EPC has not made the event a good one but a real great one. Technically very well realised. Enabling all us of to share, listen, network and follow the discussions as we are used from the past. Thanks to EPC team and all people that made this event great.
Commercial Officer Refinery, Guvnor Group
On our way to the energy transition we need to exchange and collaborate. ESF is a new interesting information, exchange and discussion forum.
New Ventures Senior Representative, TotalEnergies
For an Online virtual event EPC have really nailed it. Alongside the expected high quality of the presenters and topics the online platform is a great way to virtually present the company and network.
Global Director, Decarbonisation & New Energies, Wood
It was a pleasure for me to speak at the inaugural Energy & Sustainability Forum 2021. The event was well-organised, and it was a great experience to share as part of the panel the knowledge and passion we have for hydrogen as a crucial fuel towards a decarbonised future.
