The world we live in today has been shaped by crude oil, a natural resource. Being an economical primary energy carrier with high energy density, it has improved wealth and provided accessibility to energy intensive products at reasonable prices. Looking to the future, refinery operators will have to prepare for challenges, such as crude oil feedstocks with a more complex composition, growing market requests for clean fuels, increased demand for energy efficiency by regulators and, current role and impact of digitalization and climate change.

Refineries of the future will have to adapt to their customers’ needs and gain public acceptance. It is imperative that refiners place their focus on high-value products produced through sophisticated and energy-efficient processes, being environmentally compliant with the lowest possible carbon footprint.

As an independent consultant with a strong engineering backbone, ILF helps its clients to provide sustainable, value creating hydrocarbons that allow mankind to prepare for the future and also generate wealth.
