Feedstock is a raw material which is used in the industrial process in order to generate energy .It is used to generate petroleum products. Crude oil is used in a refining process in order to get gasoline. Petroleum liquid feedstock is combination of various types of hydrocarbons that are highly flammable and volatile and are obtained by the distillation of petroleum, coal and wood. It is also known as petroleum naphtha, coal naphtha and wood naphtha. The distillation of petroleum products and crude oil separates the crude oil from the hydrocarbon group. The petroleum liquid feedstock enables easy storage of various types of chemical that are not easy to handle. The petroleum products are transformed into operational products by altering their physical and chemical structure by cracking process. The various applications of petroleum liquid feedstock include fuels and gasoline. The other application includes production of petrochemical products such as propylene and ethylene.
