Renewable Natural Gas
What is renewable natural gas (RNG)? To produce this lower-carbon energy source, producers capture methane that is naturally emitted during the decomposition of organic waste, clean it up and then turn it into fuel that can heat homes and move trucks.
Our industries are uniquely positioned to help reduce vehicle emissions. One way is through the production and use of higher-octane gasoline. A higher-octane fuel standard would enable the use of engines with higher compression ratios that burn less fuel and generate fewer emissions.
What is advanced recycling?
Advanced recycling technologies are expanding the amount of plastic waste that can be recycled, and broadening the range of products that can be made from that waste.
Gas price factors
Gasoline prices are complicated and influenced by a number of intertwining factors and supply chain issues. The cost of raw crude oil that is used by refineries to produce gasoline accounts for more than half of the price drivers see at the pump.
Downstream, Midstream and Upstream
It may be second nature to people in our industries, but many Americans don’t realize that the “oil” industry is actually several different industries that work together to make the fuels and products we all depend on.
Why Access to Global Markets Is Essential to U.S. Refiners & Consumers
U.S. refineries are the most complex in the world, allowing them to extract more value out of each barrel of oil than any other refining system globally. This competitive edge is made possible by access to global markets.
What Is Renewable Diesel?
U.S. refineries are producing more renewable diesel than ever before. This lower-carbon fuel can reduce lifecycle greenhouse gas reductions on the order of 80%. This video explains what renewable diesel is and why it is an important part of a sustainable future.
Advanced Recycling vs. Mechanical Recycling - What's the difference?
What's the difference between advanced recycling and traditional, mechanical recycling? This video explains the difference between these two methods and why advanced recycling could help increase recycling rates.
