Diesel fuel


Advantages of innovationin the diesel market

Diesel fuel in Ghana. Diesel fuel and its benefits. Major innovations in the diesel market globally.


The engine type "diesel" and, accordingly, diesel fuel got their name after the name of the German inventor Rudolf Diesel. The progressive engineer tried to design a motor running on coal dust - the cheapest fuel at the time. However, the scientist's calculations turned out to be wrong - the fuel could not be fed into the cylinders of the design. It was decided to replace the problematic fuel with petroleum products: kerosene or fuel oil.
Thus, the development of diesel engines began. The developed internal combustion engine was patented in 1893, but it took almost 5 more years to create a motor that would work without problems.
Just imagine how much effort it took to make one run of a problem-free motor..... and how far the innovation of the diesel market has gone to make motors work specifically on it.
Today's diesel market faces a growing need for innovation, driven not only by strict environmental regulations, but also by the constant evolution of technology. Modern cars come with completely different engines - but that's understandable, because progress is never static.

Diesel industry and technology

The technology of liquid fuel provides for processing of kerosene-gasoil fractions obtained by direct distillation of oil. The finished product has a more favorable cost compared to gasoline. This fact is not reflected in the complexity of the fuel production process.
The technology of diesel fuel is constantly improving, scientists are trying to create its "green" analogs - on sawdust, algae, orange peel, etc. It is also called biodiesel.
Biodiesel is a fuel produced from natural fats and oils. The raw materials used are mainly vegetable oils like rapeseed oil, sunflower oil, palm oil etc.Biodiesel is used instead of conventional diesel fuel and thus reduces the dependence on fossil fuels. Depending on the type and quality of raw materials, different methods are used in the production of biodiesel. But the volumes of such a diesel are obviously much smaller than the familiar one. Moreover, the impact of such biodiesel on cars has not yet been proven.

Clean technology in diesel production

Clean technologies implemented in production processes not only comply with strict environmental standards, but also increase the efficiency of diesel engines. One of the most important innovations in the diesel industry has been particle filters and nitrogen oxide (NOx) abatement systems. Particle filters effectively trap particulate matter, preventing it from being released into the atmosphere, thereby reducing air pollution. NOx abatement technologies reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides, which are one of the main causes of air pollution.
Also, cars with hybrid setups are very popular today. Thus, by combining an electric hybrid system with a diesel engine, emissions can be reduced by a factor of 3! Electric components can reduce fuel consumption, especially at low loads, which helps to reduce emissions and improve overall efficiency.Optimization of engine management systems should also not be overlooked. Modern engine management systems are becoming increasingly intelligent.
Optimizing engine operation in real time not only improves efficiency, but also minimizes emissions by adapting operation to different operating conditions. This includes the start-stop system, as an example. During a long stay in a traffic jam, your engine is shut down to reduce the amount of diesel emissions (as an example) into the atmosphere.

Innovation and fuel consumption

Innovations in improving efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions in diesel engines are becoming an integral part of the development of the automotive and industrial sectors. For example, this is clearly evident in diesel fuel technology. Let's take a closer look. Modern diesel fuel technology makes it possible to create fuel adapted to certain climatic and other conditions.

Products can be improved with the help of additives:
- Anti-wear. Compensate for the loss of sulfur, protecting the motor from excessive wear.
- Cetane-enhancing. Provide completeness of combustion of fuel and improve engine starting.
- Dispersing. Allow to eliminate aromatic hydrocarbons.
- Antistatic. Accelerate the pumping of fuel, without creating a fire hazard.
- Detergents. Maintain engine cleanliness and extend the service life of the fuel system.

New fuel technologies make it possible to produce environmentally friendly diesel fuel of different grades. For this purpose, hydrotreating of diesel fuel is carried out. To create an urban-type fuel necessary to reduce air pollution, depressor and anti smoke additives are added to it.

Innovation and the economy

Any innovation is aimed at reducing costs of one kind or another. In this case, there are more benefits for the consumer, because more efficient injection systems, optimized cooling systems and advanced engine management systems, contribute to lower fuel consumption. This translates into lower operating costs for a multitude of business areas where the automobile is concerned. The same applies to industrial machinery, because it is a special item of expenditure in enterprises.
The use of advanced technologies, such as advanced emission control systems and cooling systems, helps to extend the life of diesel engines. This reduces the cost of regular maintenance and replacement. Thanks to this, any equipment will serve 10-15 years longer, because the quality of fuel in conjunction with advanced technology becomes much better.
Innovations in clean technology allow companies to meet strict environmental standards. Automobile manufacturers can now easily comply with environmental emission standards, and this is particularly important in many countries. 

In order to produce good quality fuel oil, it is necessary to follow all stages of the technological process and, of course, to extract quality raw materials - oil. Before refining, crude oil is cleaned, removing unnecessary mechanical impurities, and dehydrated at desalting equipment. This is the most important step, and after that we can move on to a number of other issues, such as emissions and environmental considerations.
