What plastics are derived from crude oil?
crude oil is a wonderful chemical.you can get a variety of products and substrates which are all useful in industry.the main products and substrates are: petrol(gasoline),die…sel,naphta,petrol gas(lpg),aviation turbine fuel,lubricants,petroleum jelly,asaphalt,tar and uncondensed gases.
crude oil is a naturally occurring, flammable liquid consisting of a complex mixture of hydrocarbons of various molecular weights, and other organic compounds, that are found …in geologic formations beneath the earth's surface. Oil and gas are chemicals made from molecules containing just carbon and hydrogen. All living things are made of complex molecules of long strings of carbon atoms. Connected to these carbon atoms are others such as hydrogen and oxygen. A simple molecule, called methane (CH4), is the main component of natural gas. Crude oil (oil obtained from the ground) is a sticky, gooey black stuff. It contains many different molecules, but all are made of carbon and hydrogen atoms.
From each 42-gallon barrel of crude oil, about 19.6 gallons of gasoline and 9.2 gallons of diesel fuel are refined.
Crude oil is separated in a separation column. Separation columns are used to heat the crude then the different hydrocarbons separate as the lighter ones float up and the dens…er ones fall to the bottom. LPG gas floats to the top, bitumen and paraffin wax sink to the bottom with diesel, kerosene, petrol and others in the middle. The height range which contains each different product is calculated based on the percentage of each product in the crude. This allows the plant to choose where to place the pipes to takes each individual product out of the separation for further refinement. For a more detailed explanation search for separation tower
Crude oil IS oil so you don't separate oil from it. You do refinecrude oil, separateing parts of it that are used for a variety ofpurposes. This is usually done by fractional …distillation. You heatthe crude oil so that the parts with higher boiling points becomevapors, the vapors are taken to condensers at differenttemperatures so materials with different boiling points arecondensed into different channels and moved for furhter processing. Portions that do not convert to vapor have very high boiling pointsand generally are the larger molecules. These "bottoms" hare brokeninto lighter chemicals in fractionation columns.
By plastic, I believe you meant addition polymers. First of all, crude oil is an incredibly complex mixture of hydrocarbons. When these hydrocarbons are separated using fracti…onal distillation, different alkanes are obtained. When these long-chain alkanes are cracked(process of breaking down the alkanes into smaller hydrocarbons), alkenes (unsaturated hydrocarbons with one more double-bonds) are generally obtained in significant quantities. When these alkenes are put together at around 250 degrees Celsius and at a high pressure of around 2000 atmospheres, the respective addition polymer is formed.
7% definitely NOT 90%
Louisianna beaches (sorry) ancient animal remains, warmed, pressurised, migrate through rocks until trapped, then drill for crude oil. Refine and split into different sizes of… oil molecule for oil products.
Crude oil is feedstock for just about everything under the sun. When crude oil is refined, its various chemical parts are separated and some become gasoline, some lubricants, …some asphalt, and others the raw materials for plastics and rubber and many more things. Here are some examples of what can be obtained from petroleum (crude oil, natural gas, and/or viscous or solid forms): Fuels - like gasoline, diesel, propane (many people use propane to heat their homes), heating oil Heavy bottoms - like asphalt, bitumen, tar Petrochemicals - used as a feedstock for many everyday products: * plastic gadgets, tools, bags, toys * candles * clothing (polyester, nylon) * hand lotions * petroleum jelly * perfume * dishwashing liquids * ink * bubble gums * car tires * ammonia * heart valves * and many more ---- Crude oil is refined and used to make all these products: * Ethane and other short-chain alkanes which are used as fuel * Diesel * Fuel oils * Petrol * Jet fuel * Kerosene * Liquid petroleum gas (LPG) * Natural gas * Alkenes (olefins) which can be manufactured into plastics or other compounds * Lubricants (produces light machine oils, motor oils, and greases, adding viscosity stabilizers as required). * Wax, used in the packaging of frozen foods, among others. * Sulfur or Sulfuric acid. These are a useful industrial materials. Sulfuric acid is usually prepared as the acid precursor oleum, a byproduct of sulfur removal from fuels. * Bulk tar. * Asphalt * Petroleum coke, used in speciality carbon products or as solid fuel. * Paraffin wax * Aromatic petrochemicals to be used as precursors in other chemical production.

yep Since it is estimated that only 4% of total the overall processed volume of crude oil is converted into plastics with another 4% used to fuel the plastics production …processes, you can say that plastics are byproducts of Crude Oil.
Crude oil is simply oil that comes from the Earth. We have to refine it, a distillation process, in order to make it efficiently useful for burning. There are several degrees …of refinement. At the bottom, are things like #6 oil; in the middle, are things like #2 oil and diesel; and at the top, are things like gasoline.
Crude oil is a type of pure oil that is brought up to our surface by oil wells. Most of the places that we obtain oil is from the Middle East(Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia). You ca…n probably buy containers of crude oil on craigslist or on eBay but I don't understand what you would use it for......
Oil was formed from the remains of animals and plants (diatoms) that lived millions of years ago in a marine (water) environment before the dinosaurs. Over millions of years, …the remains of these animals and plants were covered by layers of sand and silt. Heat and pressure from these layers helped the remains turn into what we today call crude oil. The word "petroleum" means "rock oil" or "oil from the earth."
Crude Oil is hydrocarbon and it is mixture of carbon and hydrogen.
