Louisiana Fuel Oil

Dow Aromatics fuel oil blending component products are mixtures of (mainly unsaturated) C9 to C15 components. They originate from the high temperature cracking of petroleum fractions and are separated out of pyrolysis gasoline (pygas) by distillation during the production of benzene.

The main application of Louisiana Fuel Oil is to be blended into fuel oils such as bunker fuels and fluxants.

Alternatively, Louisiana Fuel Oil could be used as a source for dicyclopentadiene (DCPD), for naphthalene or mixtures of naphthalene and methylnaphthalene used to produce concrete plasticizers, phthalic anhydride and insecticides.
