|SIn Europe and the U.S., since 1995, the graphs
show a clear emphasis on hydrotreating to reduce sulfur and improve the
quality of gasoline and diesel. Europe
shows a modest increase in hydrocracking over distillation capacity, helping
to increase the yield of distillate fuels.
|SThe U.S. has more increase in distillation
capacity than in the 6 European countries in this graph. This is in keeping with the larger
petroleum demand growth in the U.S. than in Europe.
