Although the refining industry is expected to add more than 7 MMbpd of new distillation capacity by the early 2020s, the global refining industry will witness a boost in secondary processing capacity, as well.
In late 2016, the difference between US average retail prices for premium and regular gasoline reached 50 cents/gal. This price spread has been generally expanding since 2000, and the rate at which the spread has grown has accelerated over the past 3 yr. Many factors on both the supply and demand sides are likely influencing this trend.

Because of its clean-fuel properties (paraffinic, high octane, low vapor pressure and very low sulfur), alkylate is considered one of the most desired components in the gasoline pool.

Despite high demand and depressed refining margins, the US is in the midst of a glut of gasoline. This predicament is causing a rush to convert summer gasoline into cheaper winter gasoline, in the hope that using cheap butane and higher Reid vapor pressure (RVP) specs will increase refining profits.
Many diesel fuel additive companies in North America supply different additive products formulated for diesel-powered equipment.
Honeywell UOP has introduced a new alkylation technology to the refining industry, developed by Chevron, that employs ionic liquids as a catalyst to produce high-octane motor fuels.
