Transporting hydrogen fuel is considered dangerous because of the leakage that can occur due to the diffusive nature of hydrogen when it is in a gaseous state. Hydrogen fuel needs to be as easily transported and secure as that of gasoline’s. According to the DOE, current methods for storing hydrogen fuel cannot meet the demands of a hydrogen economy. COME BACK TO STORAGE HOW STORAGE OF HYDROGEN EFFECTS THE ENVIRONMENT. There are many reasons also why hydrogen fuel can be harmful to the environment.
Nuclear energy pertains to the inevitable role of producing harmful effects in society, the environment, and damaging the financial perspective. Nuclear energy contains a great amount of concerns that are in regards to the very safety of the general population. The process of creating nuclear energy isn’t cheap, especially since the method is evidently extremely complex and must be precise with the overall division of the atom. The total cost of building and running a nuclear power plant is grossly
Due to lack of fuel, it is being imported from other countries at a very high price. This can alter the economic development in India. Even in petrol pumps, we find that cost of petrol is rising gradually! What would happen if all the oil on the earth disappeared? Mass chaos and panic as civilization immediately collapsed.
This continuity benefits the electrical planning. Nuclear power does not depend on natural aspects. It's a solution for the main disadvantage of renewable energy, like solar energy or eolic energy, because the hours of sun or wind does not always coincide with the hours with 1more energy demand. Currently, fossil fuels are consumed faster than they are produced, so in the future these resources may be reduced or the price may increase becoming inaccessible for most of the population. It's an alternative to fossil fuels, so the consumption of fuels such as coal or oil is reduced.
It’s estimated that gas reserves will run out somewhere in the next 50 years, and for oil we’re given a deadline between 2025 and 2070. The cut off point for life as we know it is drawing ever closer and even though a lot of efforts have been and are being made to switch to renewable energy sources, we can see our time with fossil fuels is running out. So the answer is simple; renewable, clean and safe energy, right? We all know the pros and cons of renewable energy sources such as solar, hydro and wind energies. These forms are expensive, require lots of land space, there’s never enough power generated and you also can’t rely on them 24/7 (when the sun goes down, we’re doomed).
Now, this resource has created a plethora of omissions in today’s world, one of them being that they contribute to global warming and are not sustainable. So, carbon-energy is not the way to go. Recently, scientists have discussed about using low-carbon energy to meet the demands from growing population and for future generations. Carbon energy is not a sustainable, nor is it a clean resource that will help our chance of reducing the effects of global warming. Carbon energy is energy where fossil fuels are burned to create energy.
1. Introduction Currently, the global need for energy is far surpassing the capacity of the world to produce enough energy to meet such needs, even with the use of our current source of electricity, namely coal. Not only are fossil fuels limited in their supply but they also deliver a great deal of polluting waste, thus rendering this method of generating electricity not sustainable. Furthermore, the
According to the IPCC, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2007), the over consumption of non-renewable forms of energy is quickly depleting the availability of the resource. Current energy sources are finite and because we use a form of energy that cannot renew itself, such as
• Ease of Replacing Infrastructure: the bills just seemed to rise when trying to replace the traditional methods with the use of hydrogen and to add on to that there is not existing hydrogen infrastructure to start off with in the first place. • Storage: it’s hard to transport and store. It is very expensive to move large amounts which in turn makes it impractical. • Expense: requires a load of work to isolate the elements like the traditional ways. (Energy, 2015) Conclusion To conclude the investigative question: it is safe to use hydrogen as a suitable replacement for petrol in cars which the slight risk of it catching alight.
BIOFUEL ADVANCES AND ITS APPLICATION - A REVIEW Abstract 1. INTRODUCTION Our main energy sources for human activity are fossil and mineral fuels, nuclear sources. They are harmful to environment because they cause ozone layer depletion, global warning and ecological devastation. Actual energy production can be considered a harmful both in pollution and environmental impact since the industrial revolution in the 18th century. Around 80% of CO2 emissions in the world are originated by the energy sector.
