Emerging Energy

Our long-term commitment to building a thriving, lower-carbon business platform.

Phillips 66 recognises the need to address climate change and supports global action to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

We are committed to providing the energy that is needed today to promote human progress and economic growth while also advancing climate change solutions.

In the UK, we are pursuing projects, technologies and collaborations that support decarbonisation and the U.K. Government’s 2050 net-zero ambitions through its Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution.

In 2021, we launched our Emerging Energy organisation. Our multidisciplinary team concentrates on four key areas: renewable fuels, batteries, carbon capture and hydrogen.

Our focus is on commercializing and implementing emerging energy technology within Phillips 66’s operations and portfolio of assets.

Carbon Capture

We are working on the first of a kind deployment of carbon capture technology at scale on a refinery, this will support the decarbonisation of the UK’s largest industrial emitting cluster


Producing specialty graphite coke used in the manufacture of lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles and consumer electronics


Potential to be a global leader in lower-carbon hydrogen production with applications in transport fuels and fuel switching

Renewable Fuels

Supporting the decarbonisation of the UK transport sector through the production of lower-carbon fuels

It is an exciting and challenging time for the industry and Phillips 66 is well positioned. We process waste oil feedstocks into lower-carbon fuels at the Humber Refinery, which is also the only European refinery producing battery anode coke for lithium ion batteries used in electric vehicles and consumer electronics. Our vision for the future is a future built on expanding these Emerging Energy technologies and a number of other projects to reduce carbon emissions which, if successful, will play a key-role in helping the UK Government achieve its ‘net zero’ ambitions by 2050.
