By: Matt Cunningham. Plant-based fuel can be produced almost anywhere, comes from a renewable resource and often produces cleaner emissions than petroleum-based fuel. With international trends swinging toward sustainable transportation, fuels such as corn-based ethanol and biodiesel from soy, switchgrass and palm oil seem like a good step toward cleaner, greener highways. But biofuels aren't completely cost-free. A number of factors play into any fuel's cost , both in economic and environmental terms, and biofuel doesn't always come out as the most sustainable option. True, a plant-based fuel comes from a renewable source, while fossil fuels will eventually run out.

T ransportation is a critical component of sustained economic growth in industrialized societies. Globally, about 94 percent of transportation fuels used are derived from crude oil. As the largest consumer of crude oil in , the United States was responsible for about 27 percent of oil used worldwide EIA, f. The large quantities of oil consumed in the United States about 19 million to 21 million barrels per day in contribute to two major problems: energy security and greenhouse-gas 1 GHG emissions. With respect to energy security, 52 to 60 percent of oil consumed in the United States was imported in EIA, a.
Biofuels are fuels made from plant materials. These include biodiesel, made from plant oils, and bioethanol, made by fermenting sugar and wheat. Humans have been taking advantage of the wind for thousands of years.
Biofuel is fuel that is produced through contemporary processes from biomass , rather than by the very slow geological processes involved in the formation of fossil fuels , such as oil. Since biomass technically can be used as a fuel directly e. The word biofuel is usually reserved for liquid or gaseous fuels, used for transportation. The U. Biofuel can be produced from plants i.
Biofuels are a growing industry of energy products that we are using every day. Everything from diesel to ethanol helps us to continue taking advantage of the benefits of modern infrastructure while reducing the impact those activities have on the environment. Countries might look at the opportunity to develop biofuels for a variety of reasons. Whether it is a desire to reduce domestic reliance on imports or a desire to help the environment, one of the most promising biofuel projects currently under development involves the use of algae.
This paper seeks to examine the impact of biofuels industry on the Pakistan economy. The paper further explores the potential advantages and disadvantages.
Fuels that have been extracted from plants and crops are known as biofuels. It is blended with gasoline and can be used as an alternative fuel for your car. Plant-based fuels come from renewable sources , can be grown anywhere and have lower carbon emissions as compared to fossil fuels. We should increase our development of alternative fuels, taking advantage of renewable resources, like using corn and sugar to produce ethanol or soybeans to produce biodiesel. As prices of crude oil are soaring day by day, most people are switching to biofuels to save money and reduce their dependence on oil.
Это цена, которую приходится платить за известность. - Действительно.
Тремя пролетами ниже Дэвид Беккер висел на вытянутых руках над Апельсиновым садом с наружной стороны Гиральды, словно упражняясь в подтягивании на оконном выступе. Когда Халохот поднимался по лестнице, Беккер, спустившись на три пролета, вылез через один из проемов и повис на руках. Сделал он это как раз вовремя - убийца промчался мимо в ту же секунду. Он так торопился, что не заметил побелевших костяшек пальцев, вцепившихся в оконный выступ.
И ради этого он вызвал меня в субботу. - Как сказать… - Она заколебалась.
