Natural Gas Diesel Fuel
733 wordsWe have known for a long time that eventually our oil deposits will dry up, and it would be helpful at that time if we had some kind of alternative fuel to power all of the machines that we use. Over the past two decades more oil has been pumped than has been found in the world. For this reason scientists have been looking to potential alternative fuels for the future. One of these alternative fuels may come in the form of natural gas. Natural gas has been found to be more plentiful than oil, an...

Daimler Benz Fuel Cell
2,486 words... ironically enough, oil refining. But hydrogen, like gasoline, must be manufactured: it bonds so easily with other elements that it doesn't exist naturally on Earth in pure form. The trouble is that while gasoline is sold in 200, 000 filling stations across the US, the hydrogen infrastructure is minuscule. The result is a chicken-and-egg dilemma: What manufacturers will market hydrogen-powered cars if hydrogen isn't available to drivers? What hydrogen producers will build more plants if hydro...

Alternative Vehicle Fuel Sources
1,633 wordsAlternative Vehicle Fuel Sources For last years there is a tendency to increasing the number of vehicles in the United States. According to National Household Travel Survey this number tripled from 1969 to 2001. The same tendency is noticed in other progressive countries. Almost all of them use hydrocarbon fuels. But the sources of hydrocarbon fuels will come to end; and, most of all, carbon dioxide (CO 2) emissions causes global warming. Hydrocarbon fuels, such as coal and natural gas, are burn...

Fuel Cells Carbon Dioxide
2,400 wordsThe purpose Fuel Cells Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to inform you why fuel cells are a good source of energy. In principle a fuel cell operates like a battery. Unlike batteries fuel cells dont run down or require recharging. In the first section the energy source will be defined and described. The three sub-sections are; how they work, current us, and the future of fuel cells. In the second section the two criteria chosen will be defined. The two criteria are environmental friendliness...

Fuel Cells Fuel Source Energy
225 wordsElectricity is a vital part of in the present day economic based world and almost impossible to do with out in this modern age. Many problems arise over the most commonly used energy sources of today such as oil, coal and even the voltaic cells used as car batteries. These resources are often expensive and are not everlasting. The process of actually producing electrical energy for daily use is inefficient since very little of the potential energy the fuel has ends up as electricity. The power g...

Internal Combustion Engine Hydrogen And Oxygen
2,006 wordsToday many Americans face a lot of economical and environmental challenges. There is pollution in the air, water, and even lying on the ground all around them. Oil and gasoline products derived from petroleum are skyrocketing in price. Brownouts and blackouts are occurring in heavy power usage areas in the United States. What do these problems all have in common; a common solution: Fuel cell technology. A fuel cell is as defined by Webster is an electrochemical generator that produces direct cur...

Hydrogen And Oxygen Liquid Hydrogen
1,177 wordsHydrogen in its liquid form has been used in space vehicles for years. Hydrogen has a high combustion energy per pound relative to any other fuel, meaning hydrogen is more efficient on a weight basis than fuels currently used in air or ground transportation. Hydrogen is the universes most abundant element. Most of that hydrogen though, is tied up in chemical bonds. Hydrogen can exist in either a gaseous form or a liquid form. Hydrogen is The liquid form is usually used for storage while the gase...

Fossil Fuels Global Warming
1,982 wordsThe Potential Markets Hydrogen ANALYSIS The Potential Markets For Non-Fossil Fuel Hydrogen? Hydrogen, most of it produced from fossil fuels, is already widely used in the chemicals industry, notably in the manufacture of fertilizers and petrochemicals. It would therefore be possible to substitute NFFH in this market. However, the total that could be absorbed by 2040 is unlikely to represent more than about 3 % of current total world energy demand. ? NFFH could be used to satisfy much of the dema...
