    1. 1. THE JUNKYARD Alexis L., Kayla V., Sheila G., Tiffany S., Marcy F. and Jordan B. 2010 2020-2040 2050
    2. 2. INTRODUCTION TO OUR Bullers JUNKYARD Our junkyard is charactorized into three different groups of cars. Gas Cars, Bio- Diesel Cars, and Solar Powered Cars. This junkyard represents all the cars that are on the roads today that wont be there later on in the future such as from now 2010 to the year of 2050. Based on our research there is lots of solar powered, gas powered, and bio- diesel powered cars that could be still on the road now and maybe on the road as well in the future for different purposes. The most outrageous price for a certain fuel or gas to be bought is bio-diesel. The reason for this is because the making of it gets really expensive and takes away all the vegetables/crops and oils that are produced in the fields. So many people would have to think hard about wether they would rather eat or if they would rather drive to their destinations.
    3. 3. RESEARCH PLAN FOR JUNKYARD Questions to Find Possible Words To Who Will Do This? What Was Project Part Answers To Search Learned? what are the most common vehicles on the road *254 million cars are on the road *Prices for the Gas today in the U.S. 010 today? 2 Gas Cars * Jeeps *Types of fuels used *For every 27 cars there is only 1 *Bronco for other vehicles truck. *Firebirds *Do you think its 0 40 worth wasting 2 *Solar Powered 20- crops to produce *Hydrogen Fuel Lots of crops are being used to 20 Bio-Diesel biodiesel so your *Water Power make the biodiesel which can get Cars car can run or *Nuclear Power people to starve. would you rather eat and not starve? 0 *You could have a 4 hour driving 2 05 Solar how many solar Advantage: Solar time for just a little bit of sunlight panels does a Powered vehicles is Powered cars solar car need? economy pollution’s at a time.
    4. 4. SOLAR POWERED CARS What is a solar powered car?. . . A solar powered car is a car that uses sunlight to run. Some solar cars do not have solar panels on them but they still run the way they are made to. The Toyota Prius offers a solar roof that powers the car’s heating and cooling system. This addition allows the Prius to go an additional 20 miles per tank of gas. 3,000 kilometers tests the limits of endurance of solar technology. The Venturi Electric is powered by both solar and wind power and is capable of traveling 30 miles per hour.
    5. 5. ADVANTAGES OF SOLAR POWERED CARS With solar cells that have power a driver and vehicle over almost 2,500 miles of terrain with no fuel stops. These cars are at a speed exceeding 65 miles per hour. These cars use photolatic cells to generate enough power to travel without using fossil fuels. Four sunny hours will get you ten miles of driving time. Positive to the economy and pollution. Silicon is the semi-conductor to make electrical currents for solar panels. Most solar cars that are available don’t have the power or speed of many of the regular fossil fueled cars and vehicles.
    6. 6. DISADVANTAGES OF SOLAR POWERED CARS The battery is far too frequent depending on the weather. Some of the solar powered cars do not have solar panels on them. The car took so long to create. The battery has to be used frequently depending on the weather.
    7. 7. BIO-DIESEL CARS What is Bio-diesel made of?. . . chemically reacting lipids such as vegetable oil, animal fat (tallow) with alcohol. Its also made of Virgin Oil Feedstock Animal Fats: lard, yellow grease, chicken fat, by products, and omega 3 fatty acids from fish oils. Algae: comes from waste materials such as sewage. Oil Halophytes: salicornia begelovii which is grown by using saltwater within coastal areas.
    8. 8. GROWTH WITH BIODIESEL
    9. 9. ATTITUDES WITHIN BIO-DIESEL CARS People choose to drive these types of biodiesel cars because its better for the environment because it keeps pollutants out of the air when the coals and vegetables are burning. Another reason for the uses and attitudes against these types of cars is because they look forward for twenty-five miles per gallon every day of the week without wasting too much money.
    10. 10. ADVANTAGES OF BIO- DIESEL CARS Bio-Diesel is less expensive than conventional diesel. Can be used alone, or blended with petro-diesel. 20% of bio-diesel fuels with 80% petroleum diesel (B20) can generally be used in unmodified diesel engines but can also be used in pure form but may require certain engine modifications to avoid maintnence and performance problems. Bio-diesel fuels are better than sulfur diesel fuels because the bio-diesel reduces system wear and is lower in hight pressure systems increases the life of the fuel injection equipment that relies on the fuel for its lubrication.
    11. 11. DISADVANTAGES OF BIO-DIESEL CARS Slightly lower fuel economy and power (10% lower for B100 and 2% for B20) Currently 1/2 more expensive and more nitrogen oxide emissions. Takes away too many crops from the fields and is making agricultural products in stores and markets crash. You have to watch out for the types of engines and internal parts in your car because bio-diesel has effects against certain rubbers, metals, and plastics and it will be degraded when bio-diesel loses its stability caused by oxidation. Bio-diesel has been growing rapidly with an annual average growth rate of over 40% per year. Many choose not to drive these cars because of the bio-diesel which freezes in the winter time when it hits below 35 degrees.
    12. 12. BENEFITS FOR BIO-DIESEL Bio-diesel has many environmentally beneficial problems. It takes energy to produce bio-diesel fuel from soy crops, including the energy of sewing, fertilizing and harvesting. During cold weather is may be difficult to start the car, mixing it with diesel or an additive will improve it.
    13. 13. ARGUMENTS WITH BIO-DIESEL CARS The farmers are the most to argue with the high productions of vegetable oils and vegetables being grown. They are thinking about switching from producing food crops to producing bio-fuel crops to make more money, even if the new crops are not edible. Many people have to argue about wether or not to have bio-diesel cars for their car and if they are willing to give up all agricultural items to produce gas for their cars or go hungry.
    14. 14. GAS CARS Because of the gas prices rising, the trucks decreased .2% and the cars grew 5.5%. TYPES OF GAS POWERED CARS: Honda- Civic Hybrid Toyota Arron Gold Volts-Wagon
    15. 15. ATTITUDES AGAINST GAS CARS People drive gas powered cars for many reasons. During this section of the junkyard were chosen the Volts-Wagon Jetta. People chose this kind of car because they like how the cars embody everything. Also these people notice how they don’t get the car to meet or beat the EPA fuel economy estimates and they like that. One last thing that these people get out of of a volts-wagon gas car is how it can ring up some phenomonal MPG numbers on their own. As well as these americans are choosing to drive SUV types of cars too. The reason they chose this type of car is because they like the combination of pulling capacity and passenger seating. They also feel safer in these kinds of cars because they are larger and heavier which gives they the safeness feeling they need to be suitable. Another reason is because they have a large cargo capacity and they get around easier and better in the snow with off road capabilities. Many others drive these gas cars for the power ups with both cars and trucks.
    16. 16. FACTS ABOUT ALL CARS IN THE US There are 254 million cars on the road today in the United States. Gasoline is cheep in the United States but in Europe it is more money. Size and weight (smaller) is better gas milage. Based on the provincial registration data there is 27 cars on the road to 1 truck. Small trucks use 40% fuel gasoline, 58% diesel and 2% of other fuels. Large trucks use 7% of gasoline and 93% use diesel.
    17. 17. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION The latest for which actual production figures could be obtained, total world bio- diesel production was about 5-6 million tons, with 4.9 million tons processed in Europe which 2.7 million tons from Germany and the rest of its produced from the United States. Near 2007 production in Europe alone has risen to 5.7 million tons alone and in 2008 in Europe totaled 16 million tons and also about 110 million tons with about 34 million tons each of palm oil and soybean oil. 13 tons of bio-diesel can be produced from 81 tons of fish waste which adds up to 130 tons of fish alone. Number one ingredient for bio-diesel is glycerol which is increasing in global biodiesel production the market price for the crude glycerol (it contains 20% water and catalyst residues which have crashed.
    18. 18. ARGUMENTS ABOUT ALL CARS #1 As the economic slide continues, Americans are focused on preserving their assets and protecting their household budgets. 1,835 car owners in the United States, 3M car care found that a growing number of consumers are taking their car maintenance into their own hands--and on their own driveways- as their household budgets continues to tighten and their economic fears grow. For some respondents, the economy is so worrisome that 3 percent say that they are afraid they might have to live in their cars if their home is foreclosed from paying a lot of money on fuels and the cars themselves. The younger generation of people from ages 18-34 are even more focused on caring for their own cars, creating new waves of automotive do-it-yourselves.
    19. 19. ARGUMENTS ABOUT CARS #2 One third (36%) of the car owners consider their car to be one of their biggest investments, although for those making between $50,000 and $75,000 annually increases to 42%. More than one third (34%) of car owners feel they have to take better car of their cars now because they can’t afford a new one and the gas prices.
    20. 20. BUYING NEW VS. KEEPING LONGER The majority of car owners in the United States are planning on keeping their cars longer and have no plans to trade in or sell their current car at this time. (55%) More than 80 percent of people are committed to doing the maintence needed to keep them running. (84%) Nearly one fifth of car owners used to think they could just go buy a new car to if necessary, but now they say they know they can’t afford it.(19%) This is even higher 25 percent among baby boomers ages 45 to 54 reflecting their concerns over pending retirement and tight household budgets.
    21. 21. REASON’S WHY PEOPLE ARE BUYING UTILITY VEHICLES Many people want a vehicle that will get around better in snow. (while this may be true when you compare an SUV to a rear wheel drive car, it may or may not be the case when compared to a front wheel drive car with proper tires) They feel an SUV is a safer vehicle because its larger and heavier built. And they like a vehicle with taller seating. (There have been concerns about rollover, but most manufactures are working on systems to minimize the risk) BUT THE TRUTH IS... Most people buy an SUV because they can. It may not truly fit any of their needs, but it fulfills their wants. We Americans are in love with our cars. We appreciate good styling, and SUV’s are currently in vogue.
