Near Sulphur Free Diesel in Drums
Diesel are a complex combination of many individual hydrocarbon components made by refineries and mixed together in order to meet specific market requirements.
Sulphur is normally decreased towards the required level by a combined using lower sulphur crude oil and also the physical removing the sulphur with the blending components. It has required substantial investment in hydro de-sulpherisation (HDS) plants at refineries. As well as capital costs, removing sulphur also needs the usage of additional energy and other materials primarily hydrogen, therefore increasing refinery operating costs.
