As industry leaders and policymakers seek to reduce the carbon pollution impacts caused by human activity, the petroleum supply chain and the use of petroleum products present numerous and significant opportunities for emission reductions, from crude oil production and refining to gasoline and diesel use in vehicles. Each part of the supply chain contributes to the oil industry"s carbon footprint. While substitution of cleaner energy sources for oil is a key strategy to reduce carbon pollution, it is also important to take advantage of available technologies that can directly reduce the carbon footprint of petroleum from production to final use.
