Petroleum Refining: Introduction, Products, Refinery's Configurations, Hydrogen Technologies convert very heavy residual oils into end-product petroleum coke as well as naphtha and diesel oil by-products. energy and heat which is utilized in heating, transport, or electricity generation around the world.

critical to the U.S. economy and quality of life, providing fuels for transportation, heating and industrial uses. Petroleum is the primary source of raw materials for the chemical industry, which relies on petrochemicals to produce a myriad of consumer goods, from paints to plastics. In the refining industry had over 90, employees, and. spills on the refinery property that now need to be cleaned up. Natural bacteria that may use the petroleum products as food are often effective at cleaning up petroleum spills and leaks compared to many other pollutants. Many residuals are produced during the refining processes, and some of them are recycled through other stages in the process.

Refining Crude Oil: History, Process and Products In the early days of the oil industry, the methods for refining oil were very different than the methods we use today. People like Samuel M. Kier used horizontal cylindrical stills that only Fuel oil is any liquid petroleum product that is burned in a furnace to generate heat. Fuel. Nov 30,  · • A by-product of this process is Coke (or carbon), which is burnt to generate steam and electricity. 13 History of Petroleum refining in Canada • Oil was first discovered in as bituminous gum when it was flowed out of Athabasca River in Alberta.
