In an interview with Euro Petroleum Consultants, our Executive Director, Frans Stokman, discusses the challenges and opportunities facing the petrochemical sector following a challenging year and highlights the initiatives that our member companies have put in place to reduce their carbon footprint.
Our revised mission, vision, and priorities reflect how the industry is transitioning to deliver on the European Green Deal. One of the main goals is to demonstrate the key role our industry plays in achieving EU’s climate-neutrality objective by 2050. To do so, we showcase many sustainable initiatives carried out by our member companies that contribute to a low-carbon and circular economy in the fields of (cracker) electrification, recycling, innovation, hydrogen etc.
Carbon-neutral hydrogen could play a role to reduce the carbon footprint of the petrochemical industry by in the short-term providing low-carbon fuel to heat steam crackers’ furnaces and in the long-term feedstock to manufacture petrochemicals.
