The vast majority of crude that is refined in one of MOL Group refineries leaves it as motor fuel: diesel and gasoline. MOL Group produces a much broader range of products than automotive fuels. In fact, our products touch almost every aspect of modern life.
OUR R&M PRODUCT PORTFOLIO
- Motor fuels
Gasoline and diesel are the most common products leaving the refinery, MOL Group offers a wide range of fuels of high quality, produced in compliance with European Standards.
Liquefied petroleum gas, is basically the mixture of propane and butane gases in liquidized form -due to being kept under pressure in metal containers. They are mainly used as motor fuels, but it is a raw material also for the petrochemical industry. The household LPG (also named PB) gas, used for cooking has a very similar composition too.
Mainly is used as the feedstock of steam crackers to produce monomers for petrochemical (e.g. ethylene, propylene, butadiene). Ethylene and propylene are important sources of industrial chemicals and plastics products. Butadiene is used in making synthetic rubber.
Mainly used to power jet engines of aircrafts- it is also called JET. Previously it was used for lighting, in oil lamps.
- Fuel oil
- Fuel oil is a liquid hydrocarbon product with several different sub-types. Fuel oil could be used in metallurgy, construction, and the chemical, power and gas industries. Fuel oil is delivered by rail tankers, road tankers and tanker barges.
Bitumen is a black, semi-solid, or liquid substance with high viscosity, primarily used in road construction. The other significant fields where it is used are reparation, waterproofing, briquette production, and wrapping paper production. Bitumen is delivered by rail tanker and road tanker lorry.
MOL Group's chemical portfolio includes aromatic products (benzene, toluene, xylene isomers = BTX). Benzene is a raw material for dyes and synthetic detergents. Toluene is used as a solvent and for making polyurethanes. Manufacturers use xylenes to produce plastics and synthetic fibers.
- Petroleum coke
Petroleum coke (abbreviated as coke or petcoke) is a final carbon-rich, solid, spongy-structured material with high caloric value. Petcoke can only be used by industrial end-users e.g. cement and brick factory. The petcoke is distributed in railway carriages and trucks.
- Sulphur is a yellow crystalline solid material at room temperature, which is produced in elemental form in refining. Mainly used for sulphuric acid production for fertilizers, and other chemical processes such as citric acid, TiO2, tire, acrylonitrile, etc. production. Sulphur is transported by rail tanker and road tanker lorry.
