Decarbonising the Downstream Industry

Welcome to ESF Asia - Energy & Sustainability Forum

As the net zero momentum gathers pace, Asia’s refiners and petrochemical producers have started laying the groundwork for the development of their decarbonisation roadmaps, whilst continuing to balance its rising energy demand, population growth, and strive for increased standards of living.

The region’s operators, with their own unique set of challenges presented by the transition, must act now to embrace the opportunities available to reduce both scope 1 and 2 emissions to carbon baseline assets and move up the value chain away from traditional fuels and deeper into petrochemicals, as well as find solutions to reduce Scope 3 emissions and the decarbonisation of its products and supply chains.

Following the success of ESF Europe, North America and MENA, ESF Asia, taking place from 30th November – 1st December in Kuala Lumpur, is the latest in our global series of conferences, firmly cemented as the dedicated regional meeting place for downstream oil & gas leaders to network and knowledge share in the context of decarbonisation and sustainability.

ESF Asia is MUST attend, critical to understanding how Asia’s Downstream sector is responding to the challenges of sustainability and the energy transition!

Whilst we look forward to releasing the agenda very soon, here’s a sneak peak of the sessions that you can expect:

POSITIONING AND PATHWAYS FOR A LOW CARBON TRANSITION - This keynote session will help to prepare Asia’s downstream industry for tomorrow, define its path to decarbonise and manage the increasing demand for low-carbon alternatives.

DECARBONISATION TECHNOLOGIES & ASSET DIVERSIFICATION - As Asia’s producers begin to carbon baseline their assets, this session will showcase the latest re-configuration, conversion and digital technologies to help maximise investments in existing assets, as well as present the opportunities by diversifying and transitioning.

H2 & THE UTILISATION OF CO2 - This session will present and discuss the latest low and zero carbon hydrogen and hydrogen carrier technologies essential to achieving deep decarbonisation targets.

TRANSITION & DIVERSIFY - THE FUTURE REFINER - With significant opportunities in Asia for Renewable, Bio and SAF production to displace conventional fuels, this session will explore the technologies to help maximise the potential for alternative fuel production.

CIRCULARITY - FROM CONCEPT TO REALITY - Presenting the latest technologies to help Asia transition to a Circular Economy through waste (plastics) recycling and conversion technologies.
