  • 1. By: Aaron LLoveras ALTERNATIVE FUELS
  • 2. ALTERNATIVE FUELS:
    • Alternative fuels are substantially non-petroleum-based fuels that produce energy and environmental benefits.
  • 3. Three alternative fuels:
    • Biodiesel.
    • Bioalcohol  methanol and ethanol.
    • Biomass.
  • 4. Biomass:
    • Biomass is anything which lives in an area and can be transformed into electricity or fuel.
    • Bioethanol
    • Methanol
    • Biodiesel
  • 5. Four types of biomass: Sugar Canes  Corn  Agricultural wastes or forestry wastes   Cellulose from green plants
  • 6. Bioenergy:
    • Bioenergy is just what we can do with biomass, so bioenergy is like another word for biomass.
  • 7. Biodiesel:
    • Biodiesel is a fuel made of vegetable oils, animals fats, etc.
    • It’s biodegradable and it only works for special engines.
  • 8. Ethanol:
    • Ethanol is a colorless liquid with a special odor.
    • It’s made of crops but it can be made of cellulose too.
    • It can be also called bioethanol.
  • 9. Methanol:
    • Methanol is an alcohol fuel, normally made of natural gas or oil but it can also be made of biomass.
  • 10. Biomass  ethanol
    • Green plants turn atmospheric carbon into organic carbon by the process called photosynthesis .
    • Biomass is harvested and fermented into ethanol. Ethanol is processed to be useful.
