Petrochemical industry Results list
Petroleum is one of the main objects of geological exploration, it is a viscous, dark brown liquid called "industrial blood." There is oil storage in parts of the upper crust. The main components of petroleum are mixtures of various alkanes, cycloalkanes, and aromatic hydrocarbons. The oil-forming mechanism of petroleum has two theories of bio-deposition and petrochemical oil. The former is widely accepted. It is considered that petroleum is formed through a long-term evolution of organisms in ancient oceans or lakes. It belongs to bio-deposition oil, and cannot be regenerated. However, another theory is that petroleum is produced by the carbon itself in the earth's crust, and is not related to living things and can be regenerated. Petroleum is mainly used as fuel and gasoline, and is also a raw material for many chemical industrial products such as solutions, fertilizers, pesticides and plastics.
