  • However, power plants and large ships are able to use residual fuel oil.
  • Use of residual fuel oil was more common in the past.
  • The main fuel for this plant is natural gas, and the reserve one is residual fuel oil.
  • Burning fuel oil, particularly residual fuel oil, produces uniformly higher carbon dioxide emissions than natural gas.
  • Since it requires heating before use, residual fuel oil cannot be used in road vehicles, boats or small ships, as the heating equipment takes up valuable space and makes the vehicle heavier.
  • In 1951, a residuum stripper was constructed to convert heavy residual fuel oil into lighter products.
  • In addition, Unit ST3 produces 505 megawatts of electricity by burning residual fuel oil and/or natural gas.
  • Iran is a net exporter of petroleum products thanks to large exports of residual fuel oil, but the refineries cannot meet domestic demand for lighter distillates such as gasoline.
  • The calculated carbon aromaticity index (CCAI) is an index of the ignition quality of residual fuel oil.
  • CCAI and CII are two indexes which describe the ignition quality of residual fuel oil, and CCAI is especially often calculated for marine fuels.
  • Mazut is a residual fuel oil often derived from Russian petroleum sources and is either blended with lighter petroleum fractions or burned directly in specialized boilers and furnaces.
  • Residual fuel oil is less useful because it is so viscous that it has to be heated with a special heating system before use and it may contain relatively high amounts of pollutants, particularly sulfur, which forms sulfur dioxide upon combustion.
  • The Calculated Ignition Index (CII) is an index of the ignition quality of residual fuel oil.
  • For residual fuel oil two other empirical indexes are used: CCAI and Calculated Ignition Index (CII).
  • It was slated to burn residual fuel oil, a by-product of a petrochemical plant to be built in nearby Varennes by a subsidiary, Shawinigan Chemicals Limited.
  • For residual fuel oil two other empirical indexes are used CII and Calculated Carbon Aromaticity Index (CCAI).
  • Without adequate supplies of refined residual fuel oil for the Battle of the Philippine Sea, Japanese aircraft carriers refueled with unrefined Tarakan crude oil in June 1944.
  • This fuel may be known as residual fuel oil (RFO), by the Navy specification of Bunker C, or by the Pacific Specification of PS-400.
