Treating

Treating is all of the refining processes intended to remove unwanted compounds (contaminants) from and improve the properties of certain products to meet the desirable specifications.

A common example is: the increase of the octane rating which is a measure of a fuel’s resistance to detonation, based on a scale of 0 to 100, as seen in automotive fuel products.

The process used to produce high-octane products is called catalytic reforming.
