Liquid fuels are combustible or energy generating molecules that take the shape of their container. Most of the liquid fuels are derived from fossil fuels mainly from crude oil. Coal tar fuel is a byproduct liquid fuel produced during the cleaning of the raw coke oven gas in the coke oven and byproduct plant. Liquid fuels are normally used in the steel plant for the production of steam for power generation, for heating purpose in various furnaces of the plant, for injection in blast furnace, and for the operation of locomotives and the mobile equipment. Liquid fuels are chemically stable and incompatible with strong oxidizers.

Generator sets are widely being used as a backup power solution, with diesel being the most preferred fuel owing to its efficiency on account of high energy density, and easy availability. Various other liquids that are used include heavy fuel oil, low sulphur heavy stock LSHS , producer gas, light diesel oil LDO , furnace oil FO , biodiesel and blended fuels.
A look at the market trends of the key fuels…. The total consumption of petroleum products during was HSD consumption in India during stood at The consumption of naphtha was LDO accounted for only 0.
For April-December , the total consumption of petroleum products stood at Of this, diesel constituted the highest share of On the supply side, the production of petroleum products grew by 4. To that end, the production of HSD grew from Only a marginal growth was seen in naphtha production from For April-December , the overall production registered an increase of 4.
The total production was Power market demand. While the consumption of HSD in absolute terms has increased steadily, its share in power generation has reduced over the years. Similarly, 0. Further, only about 0. While the consumption of fuel, in general, has been on the rise, the end use of liquid fuels and naphtha has remainedlow since in the power generation sector. The overall demand for diesel is expected to grow to about mt by , however, its share in power generation is likely to remain low with the increasing displacement of diesel by renewables.
At the same time, the demand for diesel for backup power will continue for the operation of critical loads. Name required. Work Email required. Company Name required.
