Guide to Fuel

Fuel SourcesFuel performs an extremely important role in the modern world. However, the world’s extreme energy hunger already has caused the search to find an alternative fuel that’s capable of replacing popular sources like coal and petroleum.

Fuel can be mainly categorized in to two types: chemical fuel and nuclear fuel. Chemical fuel consists of bio fuel and fossil fuels like coal and petroleum. Nuclear fuel is produced using nuclear fission and nuclear fission reactions. With the severe consumption of fossil fuel, only a limited amount is left in the world today. This has been one of the inspirations to find an effective alternative.

Find more information in the following articles and guides. Learn about the latest trends and technological information related to various types of fuel, green energy revolutions, pollution and more.
