January 1, 2005, was a cold foggy morning in Agra. But there were warm smiles on the faces of the Rathour brothers and their employees. The glass panel of the entrance announced: CONGRATULATIONS YOUR COMPANY HAS JUST CROSSED Rs. 100 CRORE MARK Shiv, Brij, Dinesh and Mahesh, the four Rathour brothers, shared sweets with their employees. Shiv, the eldest brother, had a serious look. He looked out of the window. Thanking the Almighty for His grace, he flashed back to the late 1970s, how, as an energetic 11-year-old he had joined his father in trading mustard seeds. His father, Ram Babu Rathour, a simple, down to earth, humble man, belonged to an agricultural family in Chitora village, 30 km from Agra. In early 1960s, he commenced trading business, buying loose mustard oil from small expeller1 units in Chitora and selling it door to door in the surrounding rural area on his bicycle. In 1965 he moved with his wife to Shamsabad, a small town 24 km from Agra. He shifted from oil to mustard seeds, pulses, wheat and cereals. The trading operation was in partnership with his friend and later with relatives. He and his partner invested Rs. 10,000 each. They purchased mustard seeds from farmers

Expeller was a machine for crushing oil seeds and extracting oil and getting the byproduct. The seeds were put in a funnel and passed through a clockwise rotating toothed cylinder. Toward the end of it was a crushing wheel rotating anticlockwise. The oil got squeezed out and flowed into a sump below the cylinder. Behind the crushing wheel, the residual was ejected out, which was used as animal feed. The oil produced by this method got heated due to the rotary motion. It lost its pungency. Research established that pungency was good for the heart.

    The majority of food that is consumed by Americans contains corn, high fructose corn syrup, corn-fed meat and corn-based processed food. Corn is found in three out of four supermarket products. There are more than 3,500 different uses for corn products. Corn subsidies in the United States totaled $81.7 billion from 1995 to 2011. Corn draws in more subsidies than wheat, soybeans and rice combined. The average American spends $267 a year on corn products. Americans also consume one-third of all corn produced in the world. The U.S corn crop acreage , put together, would cover all of Germany. Average corn yields have increased 500 percent since 1931, to 147.2 bu/acre from 24.5 bu/acre. In the U.S., it takes 91 gallons of water to produce one pound of corn. Annually, the industry uses 3.5 Long Island sounds to grow crop. Corn products, not including corn syrup, consumed by Americans between 1970 and 2005 increased 20 lbs, to 31.4 lbs from 11.1 lbs. Consumption of corn sweetener in the U.S. increased 387 percent between 1970 and 2005, to 77.4 lbs from 15.9 lbs. High fructose corn syrup costs $0.20 per pound, while cane sugar costs $0.33 per pound which is more expensive, and companies will purchase the cheaper sugar for production. Scientists have proved that fifty percent of the American human biomass, on average, can be traced to corn consumption. They know this because of corn's unique carbon signature. In conclusion, these facts about the corn industry’s place in the U.S show how dependent Americans are on…

    The United States is run by oil. Energy, transportation, and even the economy are based and dependent on the various aspects of oil. Without oil the world would have to learn to change their whole formed idea of living juristically. “Ninety-five percent of the country’s transportation is powered by oil” (Anderson, Glen). The importance of oil causes the United States to be highly dependent on oil; this forces the U.S. into severe financial instability. Most Americans assume the changing gas prices are the source of the country’s economic unsteadiness; “Last year the average cost for a gallon of unleaded was $3.51, the highest on record” (Walsh, Bryan). There is a significant amount of economic problems that cause the constant uncertainty of oil and its prices, which affect much more than just gas prices. This includes “America’s addiction to foreign oil [that cause] a significant impact on our economy and our national security” (Moore, Kenneth J.). The exploitation of oil, which cause financial instability, is an issue the world must address because it causes an increase in the country’s debt, high dependency on foreign countries, and everyday life economic uncertainty.…

    The INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION can be said to have made the European working-class. It made the European middle-class as well. In the wake of the Revolution, new social relationships appeared. As Ben Franklin once said, "time is money." Man no longer treated men as men, but as a commodity which could be bought and sold on the open market. This "commodification" of man is what bothered Karl Marx -- his solution was to transcend the profit motive by social revolution…

    Marketing of Crude Oil

    • 3203 Words
    • 13 Pages

    1. Name petroleum products which we get on processing Crude Oil. Ans: Petroleum products are usually grouped into three categories: light distillates (LPG, gasoline, naphtha), middle distillates (kerosene, diesel), heavy distillates and residuum (heavy fuel oil, lubricating oils, wax, asphalt). This classification is based on the way crude oil is distilled and separated into fractions (called distillates and residuum). On processing crude we are getting following products. • Liquified petroleum gas (LPG) • Gasoline (also known as petrol) • Naphtha • Kerosene and related jet aircraft fuels • Diesel fuel • Fuel oils • Lubricating oils • Paraffin wax • Asphalt and tar • Petroleum coke • Sulfur Oil refineries also produce various intermediate products such as hydrogen, light hydrocarbons, reformate and pyrolysis gasoline. These are not usually transported but instead are blended or processed further on-site. Chemical plants are thus often adjacent to oil refineries. For example, light hydrocarbons are steam-cracked in an ethylene plant, and the produced ethylene is polymerized to produce polyethene. 2. What is full form of OPEC? Ans: OPEC is the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries. It is an oil cartel whose mission is to coordinate the policies of the oil-producing countries. The goal is to secure a steady income to the member states and to secure supply of oil to the consumers. Those who invest in petroleum activities should receive a fair return on their investments. OPEC was created at the Baghdad Conference on September 10–14, 1960, by Iraq, Kuwait, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. Later it was joined by nine more governments: Libya, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Indonesia, Algeria, Nigeria, Ecuador, Angola, and Gabon. OPEC was headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland before…
