Tar-sands-ready refineries across Europe

25 November 2015

Two thirds of Europe's oil refineries are ready to process ultra-high carbon tar sands, one of the most environmentally devastating fuels in production, according to this report on Europe's refining industry. Seventy-one out of Europe's 95 refineries are now capable of processing heavy and/or pre-processed crude from tar sands, and have been mapped for the first time by Friends of the Earth Europe and Transport & Environment.
