Ok, then it's maybe practical to have product=oil as both fuel, and
edible oil as sometimes a facility makes both. Especially because both
facilities look similar on the ground.

Do you know if bio_oil facility is called a refinery? As I understand it,
you get bio_oil by crushing and filtering seeds or fruit. Refining is not
the main activity there, other than small scale refining like olive oil
into a worse product. Then we can document industry=refinery specifically
as the wikipedia describes it:
