Manufacturing: Petroleum, Chemical, Plastic Products, and Nonmetallic Mineral Products

The petroleum and coal products manufacturing sector is based on the transformation of crude petroleum and coal into usable products. The dominant process is petroleum refining that involves the separation of crude petroleum into component products through such techniques as cracking and distillation. In addition, this sector includes establishments that further process refined petroleum and coal products and produce products, such as asphalt coatings and petroleum lubricating oils.
