whereas American industry has available large supplies of natural gas; the refiner in the U.S.A. can therefore produce high quality fuels partly by catalytic cracking of heavy distillates, but his European counterpart has no such opportunity and must rely to a much greater extent on catalytic reforming processes to produce high quality fuels from straightrun naphthas. Again, while demand for high-octane gasolines has increased significantly, the growth in demand for aromatic hydrocarbons in…
