What is Oil Refinery ?


When talking about refinery, we need to be able to differentiate and identify an oil refinery from the edible oil refinery. Basically, the oil refinery (or petroleum refinery) is an industrial process plant where crude oil (from crude petroleum) is processed and refined into more useful petroleum products, such as

  • Gasoline
  • Diesel fuel
  • Asphalt base
  • Heating oil
  • Kerosene
  • Liquefied petroleum gas

This is the type of refinery mentioned in the 13 Days: Pythagoras Conspiracy Novel. An edible oil plant in the other hand, is almost similar to the earlier refinery except it processes edible oil and involves the removal of fatty acid and a few more unwanted impurities. The edible oils are obtained from the likes of

  • Palm oil
  • Soya bean oil
  • Canola oil
  • Corn oil
  • Rape seed oil and others

In other words, the oil refinery process oil that cannot be consumed by human being while the edible oil refinery process oil that is edible (can be consumed by human beings).
