Except a closed set Sc with zero parabolic Hausdorff measure, the weak limit (ρ, u) of approximate solutions is a renormalized weak solution with finite energy of three dimensional compressible Navier–Stokes equations for γ ∈ (6/5, 3/2] as constructed by Lions and Feireisl et al. in the Leray sense. The key novelty of the paper is the improved integrability of pressure by localization, which is based on the faster decay of the gradient of velocity and the higher integrability of the Riesz potentials of both density and momentum.
