Alternative fuels

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