Eni was the principal partner of IRPC 2012 - International Refining and Petrochemical Conference (Milan 12 -14 June), a high-level conference on refining.
In the context of the event, Eni Refining & Marketing was able to promote its technologies to an international audience, and in particular Tecnologia EST (Eni Slurry Technology), developed by Eni for the conversion of heavy petroleum residues into premium products, petrol and diesel.
During the sessions Eni participated with three presentations:

- The first EST industrial plant: the EST project at Sannazzaro de Burgondi;
- The use of diesel as bunker oil: an environmental limitation or a long-term opportunity for deep conversion technologies?
Also as part of the meeting, a visit was organised to the Sannazzaro de’ Burgondi EST site for refining experts from around the world.
