PRC Europe: 5 Years of Leading Downstream Transformation


The Petrochemical & Refining Congress, co-hosted by Neste, celebrates its 5th Anniversary on 17-19th of May.

The PRC Europe is an annual international oil and gas event dedicated to the European Refining and Petrochemical sector; it gathers top Downstream companies that actively implement net-zero, sustainability, and circular economy approaches in their operations. 

Over the past five years, PRC Europe has become one of the key petroleum events in Europe, previously co-hosted by MOL Group and OMV AG

More than 350 decision-makers from oil companies, EPCs, refineries and petrochemical plants, licensors, and chemical companies gather each year to discuss the advanced technologies, network to find prospective cooperation, and contribute to the sustainability of the Downstream industry.

Our long-standing success and quality reputation are directly attributable to the unique approach to event organizing. There are no marketing presentations, and no random people: only C-level management, heads of technical departments, and leading technical specialists; it makes it possible to establish partnerships & conclude agreements. 

Even during the current COVID-19 crisis we have successfully organized Congress online, with a significant percentage of VIP delegates, and with over 300 B2B meetings. 

PRC Europe Green Vision

Sustainability has always been one of the dominant themes throughout our Congresses, and core values of our work. To minimize the environmental impact we are committed to organizing events in an eco-friendly way, and making a shift towards meaningful partnerships. The long-lasting collaboration with Neste, the global leader in renewable and circular solutions, goes all out in support of the Congress’ sustainable approach.
