All About a Barrel of Crude Oil and What It Consists Of
All About a Barrel of Crude Oil: What It Consists of and What the Different Levels Are in It When crude oil comes out of the ground, it’s nothing like the neat, consistent petroleum products with which we are so familiar. Surface facilities are required to separate water, sand and solids, natu
Diesel, the Cleanest Fossil Fuel There Is
Few industries have the ability to make a positive impact on the environment in the same way construction and excavation companies can, especially with respect to atmospheric-polluting emissions. And few industries are already doing more. Whether a conscious decision or not, construction and excavat
Diesel Engines Versus Gasoline Engines: Why Diesel Engines are Compression Engines and Why Gasoline Engines are Spark-Fired
Diesel engines versus gasoline engines, the differences between the two are both numerous and significant. The biggest difference between diesel and gasoline engines is the fuel ignition process. Inside their respective engine cylinders, gasoline and diesel engines ignite fuel completely differently
Fluid Catalytic Cracking and Hydrocracking: Making Viable Fuels from Residual Oil
Fluid catalytic cracking and hydrocracking produce a variety of heating and transport fuels including diesel and gasoline. Cracking is a secondary part of the crude oil refining process. The first step in the refining process is the separation of fossil fuel hydrocarbons. The distillation process se
Is Diesel Cleaner than Gasoline and If So, What Makes Diesel Cleaner?
There are several answers to the question, “is diesel cleaner than gasoline?” Several answers are possible because there are several measures by which to judge the effects of fossil fuel on the environment and human health. Diesel and gasoline impact human health and the environment differently.
