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? (Coal)

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
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
