Hydrocarbon Processing’s IRPC Americas showcases advances in the HPI

Hydrocarbon Processing hosted its International Refining and Petrochemical Conference (IRPC) in Houston, Texas. IRPC Americas brought together more than 180 attendees from around the world to learn about the latest technologies that are advancing the hydrocarbon processing industry.

The event featured technical presentations crucial to the success of the global refining and petrochemical industries, such as clean fuels, digitalization, process controls and instrumentation, upgrading technologies, refinery and petrochemical integration, IMO regulations, process and plant optimization, catalysts and maintenance and reliability. Keynote presentations were provided by the American Chemistry Council, Dow Chemical, Accenture and BP.

IRPC Americas also included several networking events, a vendor exhibition, a mini-tech session and a pre-conference seminar hosted by GTC Technology. Hydrocarbon Processing will host IRPC Europe 2019 in Helsinki, Finland, with partner Neste Engineering Solutions, Neste and NAPCON.
