# Petroleum Products: Instability And Incompatibility

CRC Press, 1995/08/01 - 390 y[W
The emergence of petroleum and cheap resources of energy has led to the evolution of a variety of liquid fuels and other products. Recent trends have shown that the quality of the petroleum is decreasing and that refineries have had to accomodate this change. One area where such a change is particularly noticeable is in the character of the products. Differences in crude oil composition and in the nature of the products from refinery operations have all served to emphasize the issues of fuel incompatibility, as have the attempts to produce liquid fuels from unconventional sources such as coal, oil, sands and oil shale.
