Fossil fuels

Fossil Fuels

Ben Barendrecht, Patrick kap, Joris Voogt


What are fossil fuels

What are fossilfuels?

  • Oil

  • Gas

  • Coal

  • Energy richcarbohydraatmolecules


How are they formed

How are theyformed?

  • Plants and animals die.

  • Their remains stay behind

  • Over time they get covered with large amount of stone and sand

  • Under the influence of pressure a chemical reaction takes place which changes the remains in usable forms of carbohydrates

  • f.e. C6O6H12 -> CH4 + …..

How do we get them out of the ground

How do we get them out of the ground?

  • Coal

    • Large open area mines

    • Mineshafts

  • Oil

    • Oil platforms

    • Pumpjacks

  • Gas

    • Gas platforms

    • Drilling rigs


How do we draw energy from them oil

How do we draw Energy fromthem? (oil)

  • Oil is boiled

  • Creating different layers.

  • Used for machines and production process for medicines and chemical goods


How do we draw energy from them coal

How do we draw Energy from them? (Coal)

  • Mainly produces heat and electricity

  • When burned it produces steam

  • Producing electricity


How do we draw energy from them coal1

How do we draw energy from them gas

How do we draw Energy from them? (Gas)

  • Energy taken with gas turbines

  • By rotating a dynamo

  • Cleaner than other FF fuels

  • is the best domestic heating fuel


Fossil fuel usage

87.67 % of the total energy consumption in 2012 is being produced by fossil fuels

2006 - Fossil fuel consumption of total energy consumption per country

America 85.6%

Netherlands 92.5%

Belgium 74.1%

Germany 81.6 %

Sweden 33.4%

Switzerland 53.9%

FOSSIL FUEL USAGE


Forecast depletion

Proved reserves 2005 – 2007

Coal: 905 billion metric tonnes left.

Oil: 1119 billion barrels to 1317 billion barrels left.

Gas: 175 – 181 trillion cubic metres left.

Daily production 2006

Coal: 16,761,260 metric tonnes.

Oil: 84,000,000 barrels.

Gas: 2960 billion cubic metres.

Forecast(depletion)


Forecast depletion1

FORECAST(DEPLETION)

  • For how long do we still have fossil fuels?

  • Using the information given on the previous dia

    Coal: 148 years

    Oil: 43 years

    Natural gas: 61 years

  • Most optimistic guess

    Coal: 417 years

    Oil: 43 years

    Natural gas: 167 years


Fossil fuel usage future

FOSSIL FUEL USAGE (FUTURE)

  • What to consider

  • Population growth

  • Economy

  • Technology

  • Renewable energy

  • Depletion numbers of fossil fuels


How do we get the most out of the remaining quantities

Use more renewable energy

New inventions

Save energy yourself!

How do we get the most out of the remainingquantities?


Pro s of fossil fuels

Very large amounts of electricity can be generated in one place using coal, fairly cheaply.

You can build fossil-fuelled power stations almost anywhere, as long as you can transport the fuel to the power station.

The transportation of gas and oil to power stations is easy.

PRO’S OF FOSSIL FUELS


Con s of fossil fuels

Pollution (carbon dioxide and acid rain)

Notrenewable on short terms

Large area’s of landscape are ruinedbecause of miningand landscape is neededto store coalnear the power stations

CON’S OF FOSSIL FUELS


Conclusion

Right now, we can’t live without fossil fuels

Preserve fossil fuels

We need to change our energy production
