    Introduction: This project is in regards to give thorough knowledge about the alternative fuels, which can replace the conventional fuels. There are many alternative fuels developed and these are used successfully in various fields. Well known alternative fuels are biodiesel, bio alcohol (methanol, ethanol, and butanol), hydrogen, fuel cells, natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, vegetable oil, propane etc. Main sources of energy are crude oil and coal, which are formed by decomposition of organic

    Abstract The feasibility of adding AFVs (alternative fuel vehicles) to the Lotus Rental Car fleet is examined in the attached research. The advantages and disadvantages of AFVs were analyzed. In addition, the environmental effect of AFV use on future generations is also discussed. By comparing the overall information and data of AFVs vs. petroleum-fueled vehicles, and researching how other fleets have successfully incorporated AFVs, the result is conclusive evidence that the addition of AFVs to

    coal and the need for liquid fuels was in demand. The process allowed for the development of synthetic fuel in excess of 124,000 barrels per day from 25 production plants. In 1944, 6.5 billion tons of the synthetic fuel was produced and used by Germany and Japan in their war efforts. The Fischer-Tropsch process is an established technology and is applied on a large scale throughout the world. For instance, the Shell Company uses the process to produce diesel fuels in Bintulu, Malaysia. South

    Alternative Fuels Demand for gasoline has been the driving force in utilization and depletion of crude petroleum, which is a non-renewable resource. In recent years, tendencies have just begun to, at times, favor alternative fuels to power autos. Many possible alternative fuels exist, certainly not without their drawbacks. These alternatives include, but are not limited to, alcohols, gasohols, and both liquefied and gaseous natural gas, as well as hydrogen. As mentioned above, drawbacks do

    Alternative Fuels       This day in age, one of the world’s main concerns is energy. Currently, we rely on petroleum to run our cars, and household central heat, and electricity in our homes. Petroleum is not only limited, but it is also dirtying up the world’s air, and depleting the ozone layer as it is burned. Alternative fuels are one of the worlds most talked about issues, and many solutions have been brought forth, yet none of them have been sophisticatedly acted upon

    Are Alternative Fuels The Best Alternative? With the millennium just around the corner, new energy conserving ideas are being brought to the market. Among the most prominent are cars powered by electricity, as opposed to gasoline. Electric vehicles seem practical, and they protect the environment by reducing pollution. But our economy would suffer colossal changes in order to accommodate these low-emission vehicles. The entire oil industry would bear an enormous loss, car manufacturing would have

    Hydrogen can be "packaged" in several ways, as a fuel gas in a H2/02 powered engine or the newly devised solid state pellet of hydrogen isotopes that contains about the equivalent of 5000 cubic feet of hydrogen and is broken down and releases gas into the second chamber where it goes to the engine for use. There are many ways to get pure hydrogen out of many compounds using methods such as electrolysis and chemical reactions. One of the easiest ways is using a chemical reaction. Simple

    3. Alternative fuel Technology 3.1 Introduction: It has been proven consistently that acquiring more efficient technologies and progressing to increase in usage of AFVs will slow the increasing demand for gasoline in comparison to past years. A recent study has also suggested that AFV 's will decrease energy consumption from 26.7 quadrillions Btu in 2012 to 25.5 quadrillion Btu by 2040.This gives positive attitude when another research suggests that the no of vehicle usage on roads is going to double

    Alternative Fuel Vehicles Slowly but surely our nations natural resources are running out. In the near future our fossil fuels that we use to power our lives will be gone. As the years pass research of alternative fuels is becoming more and more imperative. Most important of all in the research of alternative fuels is that of alternative fuel vehicles (AFV). More emphasis should be put on the development of alternative fuel vehicles, because as each year passes our fossil fuel reserves decrease

    Alternative Fuels and the Renewable Fuel Standard In the contemporary world, the environment is becoming constantly polluted with several pollutants that are extremely harmful to human beings and the environment as well. Several of these pollutants emanate from trash that we pile and the emissions from vehicles. As a result of gasoline becoming scarcer, there is a strong push for transportation companies to use alternative fuels that are clean and safe for the environment. Several searches have been
