Nature Climate Change: Carbon intensity of global crude oil refining and mitigation potential

June 5, 2020

Our recent publication in Nature Climate Change reveals that global crude oil refining is a key potential contributor to climate targets.

The carbon footprint of oil refining differs depending on crude oil quality and refinery configuration. Analysis of global oil refining in 2015 shows refining carbon intensity at crude, refinery and country levels and highlights potential for emissions reductions. Link to paper:
