The UK’s University of Bradford researchers are proposing a method for increasing the yield of the middle distillates, gasoline, jet fuel, and diesel fuel at the refinery by applying catalytic hydrotreating (HDT) to raw crude oil. Current technology uses HDT on the fuels after they’re drawn from the crude by distillation, the process of heating the crude so the various products “boil off”.  The result from the study shows that there’s a net product
