  • Peak oil and energy security: can alternative fuels and vehicles save us?

    Peak oil can be defined as the point in time when global oil production reaches its maximum annual rate, after which the annual production rate generally declines. Against an expected profile of growing demand for oil-based transport fuels, when peak oil occurs, it could create a growing transport fuel supply gap which, if not filled, would be expected to lead to very high prices for petroleum ...

The analysis includes a private car which uses natural gas, biological fuels, electricity and hydrogen, respectively. The analysis shows that an alternative which scores favourably on one indicator often scores ...

  • Tire Shredding: Alternatives to Landfills

    For many reasons, whole tires pose a major problem to landfills. The most obvious is the inefficient use of space. The actual rubber of a tire takes up only a small fraction of the space a tire occupies, and the rest of the space is wasted. A less obvious but far more serious problem is that tires may trap methane gasses when buried with other garbage in landfills. When this happens, the tires ...

  • Fuel upgrading improves cars operation

    Gasoline is the mix of easily boiling liquid various hydrocarbons received at distillation of oil, natural gas reclamation, processing of fuel firm types and at secondary processing of products of oil distillation. The most important for gasoline are detonation requirements and fractional structure on which their properties depend. Operation without detonation of the engine is reached by gasoline ...
