Governments, action groups, and the media encourage the Oil & Gas Industry to go GREEN. But what exactly does this mean?

What is Green Refining?

Green Refining is a broad term that can refer to a wide range of industries. However, it can be used to describe a variety of sectors in the Oil & Gas sector. All of them share a common goal: reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG, CO2, and wastes), and minimizing the industry’s impact on the environment.
