The global effects of climate change on our planet in a very disturbing way.
The Swedish petroleum and biodrivmedelsbranschen has been for a long time been a world leader in finding new, sustainable solutions, to improve the efficiency of the refineries and plants, and replacing fossil fuel with renewable energy, where this is possible, but now the tempo is increasing.
for a long period of time, we have gradually increased the volume of renewable products, and have contributed to the reduction of these emissions.
We have made significant strides and are the best in the world, but it's not enough. We want to make it even better.
This means that fossil fuel emissions must be reduced by at least 85%, and the remainder is removed by a carbon dioxide capture (CCUS) and other measures. This is a major shift for the industry, and roadmap to reflect the changes that have already been started and will be accelerated.
the Government now needs to determine the rate at which carbon emissions are to be reduced in petrol and diesel.
the Oil and biodrivmedelsbranschen which is at the heart of accessibility and mobility in the society as a whole. Everything from the armed forces, emergency services, police, and other critical functions to business, industry, and private citizens are dependent on the infrastructure, and fuels for transport. This historic transformation is only possible through the interaction between the policy and the entire value chain.
the EUROPEAN commission said in a ”New green deal” for EU to become the world's first carbon neutral region in 2050.
the Swedish authorities have expressed the ambition that Sweden should be a model for the modern technology, as well nettonoll the emission of greenhouse gases no later than 2045. More than 20 branschfärdplaner that is produced in zero carbon shows that the desire to have a strong support system in the business, provided that the competitiveness is maintained or enhanced.
in our industry, providing new opportunities in terms of the increase in the production of sustainable fuels and products necessary for the infrastrukturbygge, the export of technology, and the development of a viable industry that will lead to an increase in employment.
and While the EUROPEAN union requires that carbon dioxide emissions must be reduced substantially by 2030, and demand for, fossil fuels will be reduced. This implies a deterioration in the profitability of producing fossil fuels, and leads to an over-capacity of refineries in the EU.
that is Why it is extremely important for our company to be at the cutting edge, and the increased scope of the set of the production and marketing of the products, which are burned in engines, and to the fossil-fuel-free or climate-neutral products.
But how should this conversion be done?
The move is reduktionsplikten.
An increase in low-level blends of renewable fuels into gasoline and diesel fuel, along with a completely fossil-free fuel is necessary in order for Sweden to achieve the target of reduction of emissions from domestic transport by 70% by the year 2030.
the Oil and biodrivmedelsbranschen welcome elektrifieringsutvecklingen, and you see that it is an essential part of the solution, in order to achieve the 70% target, however, is not the whole story. Renewable fuels such as ethanol and the HVO, they need the right mix of conditions for both EU and Swedish climate goals are to be achieved.
in another step, the pollutant emissions from the manufacturing process. , and it requires a significant investment in carbon capture, storage and usage (CCS/CCU). This is going to be an important part of several of the industries ' emission reductions in the industry, the full-scale plant within the next few years, however, the potential in the longer term, is more to it than that.
3. The third step is to increase the reusability of the industry's products are not incinerated. , It is a question of transformer oils, which allows the society to increase rural electrification. The Bitumen, which is building Sweden's roads, ports, airports, and allows for innovative road surfaces, which reduces fuel consumption.
as For the oil, and the biodrivmedelsbranschen to become carbon-neutral in the required political support. < / span> < / p>
Sweden is in need of a biodrivmedelskommission , in order to ensure that we meet our climate targets, while maintaining competitiveness and security of supply. < / p>
to Simplify the regulations and reduce the time for the reception. in the ut and/or renovation of facilities. The increased production and consumption of sustainable biofuels will be critical factors. The rest of the products that are not combusted, such as zinc and specialoljor will also contribute to the climate objectives, and must be, given the right conditions. Why have the permitting to go faster and faster. < / p>
to Create clear guidelines for the role: , and specific to the industry, the task of the Swedish defence forces. We need to be able to maintain and build up the infrastructure in a neutral context, in order to ensure the supply of the whole of the country, in everyday life, and emergency preparedness. The industry would like to have a clearer and more co-operation and enhanced dialogue with both the politics and the government. < / p>
the Government has yet to put up on the sustainability of biofuels and raw materials in Europe. of Countries with various opportunities need to be exploited if climate change targets are to be achieved, while maintaining or strengthening the prosperity and the competitiveness of the sector. < / p>
the Government now needs to determine the rate at which carbon emissions are to be reduced in petrol and diesel. , the the Continuous control stations is important in order to analyze the impact on the environment and the uk's competitiveness relative to our world.
We are proud of what they have done, but we are not complacent.
Through the collaboration of the entire value chain, new business development. We would like to continue to be a leading company in the world, but it will require a long-term and firm support from the beginning.
Only then can we become carbon neutral, to 2045, in both our business and the products to which the whole of the Swedish business community and the population to use.
