Brazil’s Biofuel Industry is serious about biofuel overtaking petroleum. They are developing technology that would make the biofuel a cheaper and more environmentally friendly choice. The government is doing its best to lend them a hand. They are cutting back on oil subsidies to give biofuel companies a better chance of competing.
There are a number of problems the Biofuel industry faces trying to expand into a growing market. Here are some of the hurdles they will have to pass before becoming widely produced to be commercially fit. Continue reading Problems the biofuel industry often runs into
Bio fuel also called as green fuel is coming in news quite often nowadays since it holds the prospect of bio-diesel use in the near future. This bio fuel is made from algae in open ponds and holds great prospect to become alternative source of energy that can be used. Continue reading Algae bio-fuel and its use as alternative source of energy
We have mistreated our environment in many different ways for several hundred years. With the progress of human civilization, the rate of global pollution has increased. The invention of automobiles and other vehicles running on fossil fuels have had the most dangerous and negative impact on our environment. When fossil fuels are burnt to produce energy for moving vehicles, they also produce a lot of carbon dioxide. Continue reading Benefits of using biofuel technologies instead of fossil fuels
Biofuel technology is gaining importance very fast. Can biofuels replace the fossil fuels we have been using for several decades? Only time will answer this question but biofuel definitely seems to have a lot of potential. Scientists in different countries are now exploring the potential of biofuels. They can be used in place of fossil fuels like diesel and petrol. Continue reading Biofuels as an effective energy source
We need energy and a lot of it. To meet the energy requirements of humanity, fossil fuels are burnt to produce electricity and to power vehicles. Fossil fuels create a lot of carbon dioxide, which is a pollutant. They also cost a lot. Every year the price of natural gas, diesel and petrol rises, putting a considerable strain on consumers as well as nations. Biofuels are a sustainable and cost effective alternative of fossil fuels, which are fast becoming popular. Scientists are researching to improve the biofuel technology. Biofuels are produced mainly by using plant parts and animal excretion like cow dung. These types of fuels offer many benefits when compared to conventional sources. Continue reading Our need to adopt biofuels, and the advantages they offer
The entire world needs energy for infinite purposes like cooking food, heating the homes and running the machines. Our quality of life depends on this energy and we rely completely over this abundant supply of energy for living and working.
As we know it
Air travel has been constantly increasing and so is the share of the aviation industry in emitting greenhouses gases. Most of the aircraft had been and still run on oil-based sources that are constantly depleting and getting costlier. Thus, the cost of travelling has also been increasing rapidly. The bigger concern or challenge is to replace the oil with more eco-friendly and cheaper fuel sources.
It is not new to generate biofuel from algae, but experiencing the process yourself is amazing. There are various DIY systems individual researchers and professional groups have created to produce biofuel from algae. Check out some of the most amazing DIY systems that anybody can easily use to produce biofuel.
The blooming advanced technology is looking forward for a renewable source of energy and biofuel is one of the leading choices. Biofuel is considered as one amazing renewable source of energy produced from living organisms, mainly plants or plant derived materials. The huge amount of biomass is converted via three conversion methods- thermal, chemical and biochemical processes, which leads to the production of biofuel. Bioethanol, biodiesel are some examples of biofuels. To overcome the petrol and diesel crisis, biofuel has been introduced as a source of energy to drive vehicles. But that’s not it as now many military vehicles are using the biofuels as the source of energy. Let’s find out which are the biofuels powered military vehicles.
