The Phillips 66 Limited Humber Refinery has a long-term commitment to building a thriving, lower carbon business platform by leveraging existing capabilities and advancing investments in new energy technologies.

The refinery produces lower carbon road fuels and is the UK’s only refinery to make and supply sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at scale. Additionally, the refinery is Europe’s only producer of specialty graphite coke used in lithium-ion batteries. These are the same high-performance batteries that power electric vehicles, personal electronics, medical devices and grid storage.

As part of the transition to The Refinery of the Future, the refinery is also part of Humber Zero, a world-scale carbon capture project, and the Gigastack project, the UK’s flagship green hydrogen project, which aims to harness offshore wind to power electrolysis and produce hydrogen fuel, to power industry.
