About ERTC

The ERTC Annual Meeting (European Refining Technology Conference) is a three day, multi streamed technical conference hosted annually by World Refining Association (WRA).

As part of the international portfolio of WRA events hosted annually in Europe, Africa and the Americas, ERTC is now in its 22nd year and is the leading refining and petrochemical conference in the region.

Each year, we issue a call for papers to refiners, EPCs, catalyst companies, technology licensors, additive providers, software vendors and general equipment suppliers and contractors around the globe. We work closely with the ERTC Advisory Board, made up of senior refiner professionals from across the region who are tasked with grading the various technical papers received.

Only the highest graded, most timely and original papers presented for the first time in the region are selected to be part of the two day programme. The programme is also packed with thought provoking keynote addresses, high-level panel discussions and in-depth case studies.
