How can science and technology convert the decomposed carbon-rich juices of ancient life into gasoline to power our vehicles plus make the asphalt to pave our roads. Unlock the answers to the physics, chemistry and science of hydrocarbons. We help unravel the complex chemistry and physics of how a hi-tech oil refinery turns worthless heavy crude into the transportation fuels that drive and fly our society. You won't believe what they uncover in rearranging hydrocarbon molecules like Legos! They also explore the refinery's impacts on local air and water quality. Discover the technology of how oil is transported through pipelines to one of the most advanced oil refineries in North America, the technologies used throughout the refining process, and how the refinery conserves natural resources.
