Transcript of Natural resources that affected the industrial revolution an
NAtural resources are such things as coal, petroleum, iron, and things like that. In this presentation i'm going to tell you how they affected the industrial revolution.
The petroleum industry includes the global processes of exploration, extraction, refining, transporting (often by oil tankers and pipelines), and marketing petroleum products. The largest volume products of the industry are fuel oil and gasoline (petrol). Petroleum (oil) is also the raw material for many chemical products, including pharmaceuticals, solvents, fertilizers, pesticides, and plastics. The industry is usually divided into three major components: upstream, midstream and downstream. Midstream operations are usually included in the downstream category.
The copper industry was a very big industry during the industrial revolution, it was big for wiring purposes and today it helps with wiring also.
Another natural resource that was very important for the success of the industrial revolution was iron. It was possible to produce iron because of the recent advancements in uses of coal to produce iron from iron ore. This gave to opportunity for metal workers to use coal and coke to speed the production of raw iron, bar iron, and other metals.
