Gas which is used for burning is produced from the fossil fuels, which at the moment are decreasing at a much faster rate than they are being produced. Cow Dung is a place below earth surface where all waste of animals and rubbish from city is stored. Together the waste of animals and rubbish produces a gas called bio-gas which can be used for burning. In this way, rubbish which is burnt & makes pollution can be made into a useful gas and our fossil fuels can be saved, making a better future for our new generations, that’s why scientists say that WASTE…………..IS NOT A WASTE!!!!!!!! Electricity is produced by hydro-electric power, wind power, solar power and geothermal power. All of these ways are expensive which neither a normal nor a poor country can afford. In poor countries the city’s waste water and the factories waste water is discharged into the sea, making it polluted. People drinking river water die and marine life also cannot survive. To prevent this, all the waste water can be collected in a closed place which can later be filtrated. Some of this water can be send back to the city after some treatment, through pipes and the rest can be boiled in boilers to produce steam which will run the turbine and electricity will be produced in the cheapest ways. This process can be done by poor countries & marine life will return & fewer diseases will be spread through water & the seas will remain clean. Another way of conserving fossil fuels is the process of the poultry plant. In this plant the feathers of hens, which can be found in large amounts, are used to produce fuel. These feathers are placed in water and then the water is hydrolyzed. During the hydroilisation process fats from the feathers starts to float on the surface of the water. The fats are then collected and enzymes are provided to this fatty acid. The enzymes break the fatty acid into 12-carbon and 8-carbon long chain, which are diesel and petrol respectively. These...
