Behind government “moonshots” and corporate sustainability pledges lie multitudes of technological innovations required to make these aspirations possible. The fuel and petrochemical industries play critical roles in advancing and scaling the new technologies that will help us address the dual challenge of providing the products the world needs to thrive while operating in an increasingly sustainable way.
Hurricane Ida knocked out power to over one million people and created devastation that will take months to address. But as soon as the storm passed, the fuel and petrochemical industries began stepping up with financial assistance, in-kind donations and in-person support to help affected communities recover and rebuild.
Fuel Refiners, Petrochemical Manufacturers Urge Congressional Democrats to Stand Strong, Reject New Taxes on American-Refined Energy, Plastics
Washington, D.C. – AFPM launches seven-figure campaign thanking Democrat champions, warning that reconciliation taxes could lead to higher prices on gas and consumer goods, threaten jobs and undermine U.S. energy security.
Right now, members of Congress are debating a series of taxes as part of the multi-trillion-dollar reconciliation package that could make the crude oil that runs through U.S. refineries more expensive.
It’s an often-overlooked fact that pipelines are the safest way to transport crude oil, natural gas liquids, petrochemicals and refined products on land.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – AFPM supports the drive to make the transportation fleet more efficient and sees our industries as integral in that process. CAFE standards must be achievable, affordable for drivers, reflective of consumer preferences, and consistent across the United States.
In 2015, after years of building a collection of over 600 pipeline real-world “test specimens” to be used for advanced pipeline safety research, the Pipeline Research Council International (PRCI) opened the Technology Development Center (TDC) in Houston, Texas.
Polyester soccer jerseys, polyethylene swim lane dividers, carbon track shoe insoles, and the jet fuel that moves athletes all over the world. These are just a few examples of the and fuels and petrochemical-based materials that play an irreplaceable role in summer sports.
