Dr Béla Kelemen has been appointed as President of the European Petroleum Refiners Association for the next two-year term.

Dr Kelemen currently holds the position of Vice President of the Center of Business Excellence at MOL Group and is in charge of process and performance improvement across the entire asset portfolio of the company.

The Association represents the interests of nearly all EU refiners and actively contributes to the development of EU policies.

FuelsEurope (formerly EUROPIA), which is a division of the European Petroleum Refiners Association, represents the interest of 40 companies operating refineries in the EU, including Shell, ExxonMobil, Total and BP. Members account for almost 100% of EU petroleum refining capacity and 75% of EU fuel sales. FuelsEurope aims to promote economically and environmentally sustainable refining, supply and use of petroleum products in the EU, by providing expert advice to EU Institutions, governments and the wider community.

Dr Kelemen said: “I am honored by this appointment, and I will endeavour to represent this industry in the best way with all stakeholders, and support our Secretariat in Brussels”. Director General, John Cooper, added: “We are delighted to welcome Béla as our new President, his long standing participation in the association as Board member for MOL and his outstanding knowledge of our industry are two key assets for our organisation.”
