Us Approaches To Oil Producing Countries And Bio Fuel Applications Different From Those Of The Eu

Oil producers vs. Oil consumers The oil industry has very clear players, there are countries that consume the most of the oil production and there are countries that produce almost all oil. On the side of the biggest oil consumers are the US and Europe and on the side of the greatest Oil producers are countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, the United Arab Emirates and others. The Oil producers saw an opportunity to have major power and influence the price of oil by establishing an organization...

Alternative Fuels for Cars

Alternative Fuels for Cars Automobiles are considered one of the largest contributors to climate change – only preceded by the effect of fossil fuel power generation plants [1]. This means that the automobile industry is under a lot of pressure to cut down on carbon emissions globally by finding alternative fuels for cars. Moreover, as we approach peak oil [2], the availability of conventional automobile fuels will reduce drastically causing an exponential rise in fuel prices [2], a fact that...

The Use of Fossil Fuels, Such as Coal and Oil, Belongs to the Past.

“The use of fossil fuels, such as coal and oil, belongs to the past.” For the time being, the world is mostly dependent on the use of fossil fuels. All the infrastructure is fossil fuel based. i.e. if the world runs out of fossil fuels now, there won’t be any alternative energy source to power the entire world. Fossil fuels are usually found in rock formations containing fossils from decomposed animals and plants. The formation of fossil fuels happens in the course of hundreds of millions of years...

Crude Oil

What is crude oil? Crude oil is a naturally occurring liquid found inside certain rocks trapped beneath the Earth’s crust. It is dark and sticky, classified as a hydrocarbon, or rather mixture of hydrocarbons. We separate them in order to make something useful during a process called fractional distillation. Since it is highly flammable and can be burned to make energy, it is used as a major fuel source on our planet. This oil is a fossil fuel, what means that there is a limited supply...

September 2012 Alternative Fuels in America On a national average the world uses 87.8 million barrels of crude oil on a daily basis. In 2000 it was estimated that the US alone consumed nearly 20 million barrels of oil a day, which is about 5% more than similar nations (Friedman 195). Oil consumption is only going to increase until it peaks, then it will steadily decrease as oil supply goes down. It is predicted that oil consumption will peak by the year 2019 (Deffeys 7).
