WHAT IS PETROLEUM?
Petroleum is a naturally occurring oily and flammable liquid .It can be found deep inside the surface of earth in the form of natural deposits. It is made of mixture of hydrocarbons and compounds of nitrogen and sulfur.
Its common name is crude oil.

Since Millions and millions of years the plant and animal decayed remains which were buried deep inside the layers of rocks were decomposed by the action of various microscopic organisms and petroleum was formed.
Petroleum is a liquid.
It is made of hydrocarbons which are as follows:
MACHINES WHICH HELP IN EXPLORING PETROLEUM RESERVES:
These instruments help us to find out where exactly petroleum can be found on earth and so scientists make use of these instruments and dig wells to take out petroleum.
WHAT IS REFINING?
Refining is a process of separating the various hydrocarbons present in petroleum from each other. Various refining processes are used to separate them
Petroleum is heated and than sent to a tower where the components are collected at different heights .Once they are collected they are taken out and processed. The processed by products are used for various purposes.

CONSERVING ENERGY -AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH
IN The Hindu dated sep 8 2006,the topic ‘One with your newhome’describes one full housing society Called Bed ZED housing society has just come up in different parts of the world. Bed stands for BeddingtonThe locality in London where it is situated and ZED stands for Zero Energy Development. The entire colony uses no petrol, Coal or fossil fuel. It uses solar energy by solar panel, wide windows, to get natural lights, and the generator is run by waste. Even water is used by rain water harvesting. Toilet water is used by treating the water through biological means.
