Alternative Car Fuel
Alternative Car Fuel
Back in the year of 2000 alternative fuel was being used by at least eight million vehicles through-out the world. The increasing popularity of vehicle energy sources has ground by leaps and bounds. Our need for research in this vital area is paramount. The term alternative fuel refers to a source of energy which is renewable.
The main purpose of fuel of course is to store energy in a form that is stable and can be easily transported from the place of production to the end user- us and our vehicles. Almost all fuels are chemical fuels, that store l potential energy that we use. We the end user are then able to consume the fuel at will, and release energy, usually in the form of heat for a variety of applications, such as powering an engine, or heating a building and so forth.
Many of the well known alternative fuels include biodiesel, ethanol, butanol, chemically stored electricity (batteries and fuel cells), hydrogen, methane, natural gas, wood, wood gas, vegetable oil, biomass, and peanut oil.
Much concern is that of sustaining our high usage coming from both enviromental ,economic and geopolitical considerations. Much more care needs to take place in order for us to sustain our needs while developing the other available resources at various phases of developement. We can confidentally move forward with a level of positive expectation. Patience is the most critical aspect of the developement process.
A great deal of research, discussion, and in depth work clearly points out to us that we need to take on this growing shortage problem. No longer can we simply state that we have an issue that eventually needs to be dealt with. Itís here now and we need to act.
By the years 2010 to 2020 we'll see many pressures brought forth for new energy resources as we continue to deplete our resources. Since the majority of major energy resources are in the middle east the on going unrest can be further intensified with these on going pressures.
There's no longer any debate or questions regarding the need for the developement of alternative car fuel.
