TAR SANDS: COMING TO AN OIL REFINERY NEAR YOU?

TAR SANDS: COMING TO AN OIL REFINERY NEAR YOU?

Oil from tar sands is among the dirtiest fuels in the world. Keeping it in the ground is a must if we are to stand any chance of staying below a 1.5°C or even 2°C increase in global temperatures. But tar sands shipments have already started arriving to be processed in some European refineries.

As not all European refineries are capable of processing this type of crude, this map shows which ones are already equipped to do so and their risk of receiving tar sands shipments. It focuses on two different types of tar sands: heavy crude and pre-processed (light) crude. This map was developed on the basis of an independent report. Here is how the report was interpreted for developing the map.
