Abstract

Providing fuels to consumers involves many steps, including mining, refining, storing, and transporting from the source to the site of use. The fuels researched in this documentary include coal, petroleum, natural gas, and electricity. Methods used to process raw materials into fuels vary from the compression of natural gas to the distillation of petroleum. The transportation of refined fuels and energy to consumers may involve trains, pipelines, tankers, and smart grids. The cost of refining and transporting fuels is often detrimental to the environment. This video explores the modes of processing, transportation methods, and the various costs associated with each fuel source.
