The ARA Week is an annual flagship event of the African Refiner Association (ARA). Sustainable Fuels, one of Petrochemicals Europe's sector groups will participate in the event on behalf of the global fuel ethers team made up of the Latin America Clean Fuels Association (ACELA), the Asian Clean Fuels Association (ACFA) and the (European/ African) Sustainable Fuels association.
The event entitled “Towards sustainable and clean mobility in Europe” will be the opportunity to launch Sustainable Fuels’ Vision for 2050 and to discuss the changes and the direction to which both the fuel and the automobile sectors are heading in view of the targets proposed by the Commission in the Green Deal. It will also highlight how coordinated improvements that can be made in vehicles and fuels technologies will help drive CO2 reduction from transport.
Times are uncertain for the petrochemicals industry in wake of covid-19. Many parts of the petrochemicals industry have been particularly hard hit, while at the same time, the need for medical equipment has opened the door to new opportunities for some. During the S&P Global Platts European Petrochemicals Virtual Conference, key industry players will talk about how the sector is adapting to these turbulent times.
