• Use of proper biodiesel blend in the engine approved by many automakers
• Fuel economy and power of biofuel is less
• Currently more costly
• B100 is not use in low temperatures due to converting gel

Natural Gas: natural gas like methane is cleanest burning alternative fuels. It can be used in the form of compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG). Application of CNG and LPG are automobile and cooking. Dedicated natural gas vehicles are designed to run on natural gas only, while bi-fuel vehicles can also run on gasoline or diesel. Advantage: Bi-fuel vehicles allow users to the wide-spread availability of gasoline or diesel but use a cleaner, more economical alternative when natural gas is available. Drawback: Since natural

Hydrogen is also used in fuel-cell vehicles that run on electricity produced by the petrochemical reaction that occurs when hydrogen and oxygen are combined in the fuel stack. Advantage: No bad emissions. Drawback: Cost and also the lack of fuelling infrastructure and difficulty of putting it in place.

1.2.2Why Use Alternative Fuels:
• To prevented the Environmental Damage
• To prevented the Global Warming
• Minimizing the oil Spills
• To prevent the air Pollution and also the acid Rain
• Health Threat of Fossil Fuel Use
• Maximize the running of vehicles without the use of Oil
• Improve the availability of fuels & minimize the cost of fuel

1.3 Biodiesel is manufacture from a chemical process which is known as transesterification. Chemically biodiesel is referred as mono alkyl esters of long chain fatty acid derived from renewable biological sources. It can be directly used in the compression ignition engine. Biodiesel fuel is a clean burning alternative fuel that comes from 100% renewable

In the world, transport takes account of 25% of energy and more than 60% of absorbed oil. That mean alternative fuel is necessary to operate vehicles and reduces dependency of conventional oil.
• Energy Generation: Due to population growth energy consumption is very high in India like both rural and village areas.80% energy supply in India by fossil fuel (coal) to fulfill demand. Biodiesel is good alternative to reduce dependency of fossil fuel.
• Clean Oil Spills and Grease: Biodiesel refineries occur from vegetable and animal, then releases less toxic product and bio fuel called environment friendly. biofuel can also help to clean up oil spills and grease.
• Lubrication: Diesel fuel is required to reduce the sulphur concentration as sulphur provides the most lubricity of fuel. This is important when it comes to keeping the engine properly functioning and to avoid premature infection failure.
• Boiler Fuel: With natural gas price increasing rapidly day to day, biodiesel can be substituted easily for natural gas with minor changes necessary to the burner

    The pollution created by most petroleum vehicles is a big cause of global warming. As pointed out by: Siena Kaplan, Brad Heavner, and Rob Sargent, "Plug-in cars ... produce less global warming pollution, emit little or no pollution from the tailpipe, and reduce our dependence on oil” (Plug-in Electric Vehicles Will Reduce Air Pollution). One of the most important things we need to consider, is where we get our energy. Some parts of the country obtain their energy from coal; which is not a clean source of energy for pollution reduction. The energy source we need to advance in, is clean energy.…

    The new engines are said to me the most environmentally cleanest engines on the roads. Biodiesel is an environmentally friendly fuel that can be used in any diesel engine without modification. (Demirbas, 2009) The emission that is emitted from the tailpipe form diesel fuel compared to that of biodiesel is very low. Greenhouse gas emission is reduced because carbon dioxide that is released from the biodiesel combustion is offset by the carbon dioxide is absorbed while growing the soybeans or other stock feed. (Conserve Energy-Future, 2015) Biodiesel fuel is a much better brand than petroleum fuel; it is renewable, biodegradable, non-toxic, and essentially free of sulfur and aromatics.…

    In this way, biodiesel shows that are possible to turn into fuel this green energy. Nonetheless, because it is made of natural oil, Biodiesel is biodegradable, in other words, it decomposes. For the nature this is very good, but as a fuel this property is not desirable because reduces the time it is possible to store and use this fuel. Beyond that, biodiesel can turn in gel in colder weather. The temperature at which the biodiesel is transformed gel depends on the feedstock and mixture of biodiesel to…

    Replacing gasoline cars with these non polluting battery powered cars would cut down on air pollution, save money, and would save fossil fuels. Battery power is safer for the environment than gasoline cars that are terrible for the environment. Battery powered cars don’t pollute the air with toxic gases, since they do not burn gasoline, and are better for the Earth. Gasoline cars burn gasoline and create a terrible fog like pollution called smog, this can be stopped by battery powered cars. Along with the prevention of smog, they also don’t produce gases that deplete the ozone layer,…

    4 Feb. 2016. This study states that the recycling of carbon dioxide (CO2) cannot completely reduce the large concentrations of CO2 in the thermosphere, but it is indeed a functional process to produce modern chemicals. However, the process to hydrogenate CO2 with good selectivity and long term usage may require energy at high cost. Yuehui and Beller suggest that the intervention of more active and stable catalysts can lower the costs and increase the efficiency of the conversion of CO2 to methanol (CH3OH). Accordingly, they studied the…

    In addition, it occupies lesser space leading to more quantities transported at a go with reduced expenses. Transporting methane gas in this state shall also be beneficial in that the trucks carrying the gas shall get to use the same gas for fuel. This economically viable mode of power generation is also one of the most environmental friendly modes as the vehicles will lead to minimal air pollution. It is due to the fact that combustion of methane produces carbon dioxide as opposed to the more hazardous carbon monoxide (Jarad et al.,…

The topic of biodiesel versus diesel is a complicated subject but when dug into its easy to see the differences. Biodiesel has benefits and problems as well as diesel having benefits and problems, but you gotta see the bigger and smaller problems of each fuel. Some say biodiesel is better because it is better for the environment and has a cleaner engine, whereas diesel is cheaper and now already has regulations to keep the air pollution and fumes from the exhaust almost down to zero. This is where you have to decide what is more important, economy, or environment?…

    The more the factories burn fossil fuels the more pollution it will cause, meaning more greenhouse effect due to the waste gases that is produced, which can cause a climate change. To reduce the burning of fossil fuels, we should take energy saving in consideration. This is why energy saving in my opinion is the easiest way that we can do to help reducing global warming. One of the best ways we can do that is by replacing our old regular incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs (cfl), since CFLs use 60% less energy than a regular bulb. Also we can turn off the lights and electrical devices that we are not using.…

    It is commonly produced by esterifying or transesterifying the vegetable oils or animal fats with methanol [9]. It can be used directly or mixed with petroleum–diesel in any proportion and directly used in engines with no need of modifications [10]. Its usage reduces greenhouse gas emissions compared to mineral diesel. Biodiesel has a relatively high flash point, which makes it safer to handle. It provides good lubricating properties which reduces component wear and enhances engine life.…
