    Special Issue Description

    Dear Collegues,

    Oil refining is a crucial step in turning crude oil into commercial goods like gasoline, lubricants, and kerosene.
    Distillation, cracking, coking, reforming, posttreatment, and product refining are a few of the processing steps that make up a typical oil-refining process.
    These processes require a huge amount of thermal energy to operate, and as a result, significant amounts of CO2 are released throughout the refinery from various sources.
    Over the past 20 years, crude oil refining has become more complicated. The refining business is facing new difficulties because of lower-quality crude oil (such as heavy crude, extra heavy crude, and tar sand bitumen), the instability of crude oil prices, and environmental rules that demand more efficient production methods and better-performing goods.
    The key to overcoming obstacles, preserving the sustainability of the American refining industry, and producing the hydrocarbon fuels on which the modern world depends is technical research and development that improves processes and boosts energy use efficiency.
