Diesel Production Cost Analysis 2021 | Procurement Resource
Diesel fuel is a liquid fuel that can be used in diesel engines. It means it is a fuel whose fuel ignition takes place without any spark because of the compression of the inlet air mixture and the injection of fuel. Diesel engines have found to be of broad use as an outcome of higher thermodynamic efficiency and, thus, fuel efficiency. This is specifically seen where diesel engines are run at part-load; as their air supply is not throttled as in a petrol engine and their efficiency still remains very high.

The most generic type of diesel fuel is a particularly fractional distillate of petroleum fuel oil. However, substitutes that are not extracted from petroleum, such as biodiesel, biomass to liquid (BTL), or gas to liquid (GTL) diesel, are being increasingly developed and adopted. To differentiate between the two types of diesel, petroleum-derived diesel is usually called petrodiesel. Ultra-low-sulphur diesel or ULSD is a standard for defining diesel fuel with substantially lowered sulphur contents. ULSD is widely adopted in regions like e UK, mainland Europe, and North America.
