Bio-fuels <ul><li>By Angela and Justin </li></ul>
About Eco-fuels Eco-fuels is a new company in the bio-fuel service. Eco-fuels new invention, the bio-fuel powered hot air ballon has had a slow start but we expect sales to go up after we start selling rides.
What is bio-fuel? Bio-fuel is a new kind of fuel, a more green type too. Bio-fuel has many uses and can be made from many different types of plants. Some of the plants that can be made into bio-fuels come from underwater like algae. Bio-fuel is also split up into some groups like bio-diesel and bio-ethanol.
Bio-fuel uses Bio-fuel can be used in many different ways. Bio-fuel can be converted into bio-diesel wich is used to run cars and other vehicles that use diesel but it is mostly used in cars because of gas prices. One of the most unexpected uses for bio-fuel is cleaning up oil spills and generating electricity.
Q1. What is bio-fuel? A1. Bio-fuel is a type of fuel deprived from bio-mass or plants. Q2. Why is bio-fuel better than fossil fuels for the environment? A2. Bio-fuels are better for the environment because they are made of plants and when burned they don’t give off greenhouse gases. Questions set 1
Q3. Why do bio-fuels release natural gas instead of greenhouse gases? A3. Because bio-fuel is natural, so it gives natural gases. Q4. Why do bio-fuels have many different types of bio-fuel like bio-diesel? A4. Because different types of bio-fuel have different purposes. For example, bio-diesel is used in engines of some types of cars.
Q5. Why was bio-fuel invented? A5. Bio-fuel was invented to hopefully replace fossil fuels so the world would be less polluted. Q6. How can vegetable oil, a bio-fuel, be used in some cars? A6. Straight vegetable oil and/or pure plant oil can be made into bio-diesel, which can used to substitute car fuel.
Questions Set 2 Q1. How is a the time a regular hot air balloon different from a bio-fuel powered one and how will it affect the flight of the hot air ballon? Q2.
Q3. Would a regular hot air balloon work better, or a bio powered one? A3. Actually, since we know a regular one works, I think the regular hot air balloon would work better, because we don’t know if our invention would work. Q4. What would happen if the invention doesn’t work? A4. If our invention didn’t work, we would try different ways until we find a way, so our invention would be a success.
