Procurement Resource Assessment of Kerosene Production Process:

  1. Kerosene Production from Fractional Distillation: This report provides a detailed cost analysis of Kerosene production through Fractional Distillation. During the process, the crude oil is first extracted from the earth’s crust. Next, it goes through a heating process to separate the elements. The obtained commodity is evaporated at temperatures ranging from 150°C to 250°C, then condensed and collected in a separate chamber. Finally, it undergoes the purification process via catalytic reforming, alkylation, catalytic cracking, and hydro-processing.

Product Definition:

Kerosene is a flammable hydrocarbon liquid obtained from petroleum. It is naturally pale yellow or colourless with a distinct and unpleasant odour. It is produced from the distillation of crude oil. It is usually used as a fuel, for burning kerosene lamps, local heaters, or furnaces, and in jet engines as a solvent for insecticide and greases.

Market Drivers:

Kerosene is a significant element in aviation fuel, constituting around 60 percent of the fuel. It is also an essential oil in central heating systems and can be used as a cleaning agent. It is also a good substitute for biomass, solid fuels, and coal. Therefore, its use in cooking, heating, and lighting is boosting its demand.
