    Alternative energy should replace nonrenewable fossil fuels to better the environment in the United States. The ozone layer is decreasing as greenhouse gases in fossil fuels are increasing. There is an increase in pollution in the atmosphere, which can cause health problems for people breathing in these pollutants such as carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O) and other fluorinated gases. The continued use of fossil fuels over time has led to the need for alternative energy because in a few decades there will be nothing further left of fossil fuels. These toxic fumes are poor to plants, animals, and humans, also harmful to the economy. Coal, oil, and natural gas are examples of non-renewable energy, which means it’s incapable…

  • Analysis Of ABE As An Alternative Fuels

    As mentioned above, the research about ABE as an alternative fuel is still in the early phase. Most research deals with the combustion and emissions performance of ABE-diesel blends in diesel engines, while the study about SI engine fuelled by ABE-gasoline blends is still not sufficient. Nithyanandan et al. (2014) [223] undertook preliminary investigations of the per-formance and emissions of a port-fuel injected SI engine fuelled with ABE and gasoline with volumetric ratios of 0%, 20%, and 40%…
