Petroleum refining - Petroleum refining - Gasoline blending: One of the most critical economic issues for a petroleum refiner is selecting the optimal combination of components to produce final gasoline products. Gasoline blending is much more complicated than a simple mixing of components. First, a typical refinery may have as many as 8 to 15 different hydrocarbon . An alternative fuel vehicle is a motor vehicle that runs on a fuel other than traditional petroleum fuels (petrol or Diesel fuel); and also refers to any technology of powering an engine that does not involve solely petroleum (e.g. electric car, hybrid electric vehicles, solar powered).Because of a combination of factors, such as environmental concerns, high oil prices and the potential for.

A continuous rise in the consumption of gasoline, diesel, and other petroleum-based fuels will eventually deplete reserves and deteriorate the environment, Alternative Transportation Fuels: Utilisation in Combustion Engines explores the feasibility of using alternative fuels that could pave the way for the sustained operation of the transport sector.

It assesses the potential avenues for using different alternative fuels in the transport sector, highlights several types of transport. Alternative fuels provide opportunities for reducing production costs. Further benefits are environment-related: reduction of emissions, utilisation of energy from alternative fuels etc.

A project. fuels are petroleum distillates serves as the basis for the entire infrastructure of refining, fuel transport, filtration, testing, purchase, and refueling. The inherent assumption of fungible petroleum-based fuels has resulted in standards that are not suited to evaluate alternative processes and alternative sources.

At WVU, natural gas and other shale gas-derived fuels (and their blends with other renewable and/or unconventional fuels) are a priority interest. The experimental data acquired in the lab will increase the utilization of shale gas by providing engineers with the necessary tools to design cleaner, more fuel-efficient power-generation systems.

EPA's research into alternative transportation fuels, such as ethanol and methanol, explores their potential for use as cost-effective, sustainable fuels that achieve both low emissions and high fuel economy. This research consists of engine and vehicle development and testing to develop high-performing, economical alternatives to conventional.

Recent studies estimate that unconventional oil reserves, including heavy oils, extra-heavy oils and bitumen exceed 6 trillion barrels. This amount is equivalent to about 70% of all energy resources de-rived from fossil fuels in the world (Oilfield Review Summer, ).
