Alternative Fuels: Producing and Using Biodiesel, Ethanol, and Fuel Cells
With the ever growing concern of the harmful effects of fossil fuels on the planet as well as the fact that they are non-renewable, more and more resources are being put toward creating and using alternative fuels such as biodiesel, ethanol, methanol, and hydrogen-powered fuel cells. These renewable fuels created from biomass sources are more environmentally friendly than their fossil fuel counterparts, and can be produced at comparable costs than conventional drilling for and refining oil and coal.
The automotive marketplace is shifting. Suddenly a traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) is not your only option. Do you understand your choices? The following is a guide to the pros, cons, ins and outs of the four most common new car power trains: Hybrid, Plug-In Hybrid, Battery Electric and
The high cost of fossil fuels coupled with CO2 emissions threatening climate change has led to an influx of proposals for renewable energy projects. However, the choice as always will come down to costs and which renewable energy type has the best short-term and long-term economic potential.
Farmers who grow barley and other cereal crops have had difficulty reaping their harvest due to wet weather prevalent in many parts of the world. This has caused them to reap wet barley resorting to the use of expensive grain dryers to reduce the humidity content before it is acceptable for malting.
An exclusively ethanol two stroke engine is presently not possible. However ethanol blended gasoline can be used to run your vehicles. Find more about how and when to use ethanol blended with gasoline. Also know about what your company has to say about the compatibility of your vehicle with ethanol.
Natural gas can be used as a dual-fuel in diesel engines following a conversion. The gas is compressed (CNG) and contained in a pressure tank usually in an automobiles boot or underneath the truck’s body. It is less toxic and safer to use, emitting less CO2, than a normal petrol or diesel engine.
