To address the growing demand for oil products against a background of resource depletion, refineries need to make maximum use of every barrel produced, while at the same time meeting ever more stringent specifications.
To meet this dual challenge, IFP Energies nouvelles is developing increasingly efficient processes. The other option being explored by IFP Energies nouvelles is the production of synfuels from natural gas and coal, since these resources are available in greater quantities than oil. Finally, the demand for hydrogen, which is used both in refining and for the production of synfuels, is set to rise.
IFP Energies nouvelles is developing technologies capable of meeting this demand.
