Presentation Transcript


Other Alternative Fuels


  • Natural gas (compressed or liquefied)

  • Liquefied petroleum gas (propane)

  • Hydrogen

  • Coal-derived liquid fuels


Natural Gas

  • Natural gas is a mixture of hydrocarbons, mainly methane, and is produced either from gas wells or in conjunction with crude oil production.

  • Natural gas is consumed in the residential, commercial, industrial, and utility markets.

  • Natural gas can either be stored onboard a vehicle as compressed natural gas (CNG) or as liquefied natural gas (LNG).

  • Natural gas can also be blended with hydrogen.


Propane

  • Propane or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is a popular alternative fuel choice for vehicles.

  • Propane is produced as a by-product of natural gas processing and petroleum refining.


Hydrogen

  • The simplest and lightest fuel is hydrogen gas.

  • Hydrogen may contain low levels of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide

  • Hydrogen can be produced using diverse, domestic resources including fossil fuels, such as natural gas and coal, nuclear; and biomass and other renewable energy.


Methanol

  • Methanol is produced from natural gas in production plants with 60% total energy efficiency.

  • Methanol can be made with any renewable resource containing carbon such as seaweed, waste wood and garbage.

  • Methanol fuel cells will greatly reduce carbon dioxide emissions for vehicles and virtually eliminate smog and particulate pollution.


Answer the following in your notebooks and print the file.

  • Which alternative fuel is also called propane?

  • Which alternative fuel can be compressed or liquefied?

  • Give 3 examples of renewable resources.

  • Research from the internet, newspaper or magazine about the use of (any) alternative fuel. Print or cut the article and make a summary about what you have read.
