Oil & Gas Industry environmental concerns are on the rise. The government is putting pressure to tighten the laws governing CO2 reduction, production of alternative fuels and their use.
Media, government and other groups encourage the Oil & Gas Industry (O&G) to “go green”, but what exactly does this mean?
Green Oil Reclamation Services Amlon Group: What does it mean?
Green Refining refers to a broad term which can include a range of topics. In the Oil & Gas industries, the term Green Refining has been used for a number sectors with a shared goal – reducing emission (GHGs, CO2, and wastes), and minimizing industry impact on the planet.
Green refining is concerned with a variety of issues, like;
Energy Efficiency – Technology, Innovations
The CO2 Reduction Technologies
– Energy Efficiency
Cogeneration in Refineries
CO2, GAS LIQUID, & SOLID
Refining Strategies and Petrochemicals Emissions Reductions
– Factors and sources that affect CO2 emission from refineries
– Other types of emission reduction (Gaseous, liquid and solid).
CO2 SEQUESTRATION & CAPTURE
The Carbon Capture and Sequestration System (CCS) is a way to achieve the GHG Reduction Goals
Carbon-Capture methods – Oxycombustion, Pre-Combustion
– Captured Carbon Dioxide Injection and its Uses — Depleted Oil and Natural Gas Fields
Biofuels and Renewable Energy Resources
– The Future of Bio-Fuels and Alternative Fuels, Their Development and their Competitiveness
– Electricity From Renewable Resources Status, Prospects And Impediments
Promoting Renewable Energy
Green refining discussion revolves around Green House Gas and CO2 emission.
Green House Gases and CO2 have been a hot topic in the energy debate of this millennium. This is due to the increasing concern over the release of CO2 into the atmosphere, and the impact it has on global climate change.
Over 70% of GHG emissions are CO2 emissions. So, the question is: What is the Oil, Gas & Energy Sector doing to reduce emissions? And what options do they have, such as:
CO2 REDUCTION TECHNOLOGY RESULTS
CO2 EMISSIONS – TECHNOLOGY RESPONSES, CAPTURE & SECURESTRATION
Everybody is well aware that the possibility of climate change has been growing due to an increase in CO2 emissions, and Green House Gases as a group.
