Abstract:

Looks at where oil comes from, how we transport, process, and use it, and what impact this has on our environment. Oil is a natural resource and plays an important part in our everyday lives. We use oils for fuels and in cooking, and to make paints, plastics, and many other substances. Unlike vegetable oils, crude oil is a fossil fuel that will, one day, run out. The search for an alternative is, therefore, very important.
