Fuel Oil IFO is also known as heavy fuel oil and is used in industry and energy sector. It is often used as ship fuel, but can also be used in power plants. IFO is obtained from the atmospheric distillation process of petroleum and is a heavy fuel oil made from low quality crude oil oils. IFO is a fuel with high viscosity and low fuel efficiency. Before it can be used as fuel, it must first be warmed up. In addition, since it is a low quality fuel, it releases harmful emissions to the environment during combustion. For this reason, its use in the transition to environmentally friendly energy sources is gradually decreasing. The IFO is usually numbered and the numbers depend on the viscosity and temperature of the fuel. For example, the IFO 180 is designed to have a temperature of 180 degrees Celsius when heated.
