Types Of Diesel 

Below are the various types of fuel available on the Ghanaian market.

1. Petroleum Diesel 

The most popular form of fuel is petroleum diesel, often known as fossil diesel, which is used in freight trucks, railroads, buses, and farm and construction vehicles. Petroleum diesel is also used in a large number of modern passenger automobiles.

Petroleum Diesel constituents are obtained by fractional distilling crude oil at temperatures ranging from 200 to 350 degrees Celsius under air pressure. As a result, a variety of carbon chains with between 8 and 20 carbon atoms per molecule emerges.

2. Synthetic diesel

Synthetic diesel was developed in response to a quest to identify long-term low-carbon fuel options. It can be made from a variety of carbonaceous materials, including biomass, biogas, natural gas, and coal.

After the natural substance has been gasified and purified, it proceeds through the Fischer-Tropsch process, which is a sequence of chemical processes that turns carbon monoxide and hydrogen into a hybrid substance known as hydrocarbons. The near-zero sulphur content of this type of diesel has been praised for lowering overall emissions.

3. Biodiesel

Biodiesel is a renewable fuel manufactured from vegetable oils, animal fats, or recycled restaurant grease that offers an alternative to petroleum-derived diesel. Soybean oil made up over 55 per cent of the total feedstock used to create biodiesel in the United States in 2016, followed by canola and corn oil. Biodiesel is referred to as B100 in its finest form.
