The Problem and its Settings
Biodegradable waste is a type of waste which can be broken down, in a reasonable amount of time, into its base compounds by micro-organisms and other living things, regardless of what those compounds may be. These waste are either organic or inorganic that is found in our environment. Such are remains of plants, animals, fruit peels and food. Which will eventually be nutrients for plants in the soil.
Non-biodegradable waste refers to materials that do not break down naturally or take an inordinate amount of time to do so. When thrown away, these materials cannot be dissolved by the bacteria, fungi and living organisms in the air, moisture, climate or soil, whereas biodegradable materials decompose naturally. Examples are plastic, styro foam, aluminum cans and some kinds of rubber.
Fuel gas is any one of a number of fuels that under ordinary conditions are gaseous. Many fuel gases are composed of hydrocarbons(such as methane or propane), hydrogen, carbon monoxide, or mixtures thereof. Such gases are sources of potential heat energy or light energy that can be readily transmitted and distributed through pipes from the point of origin directly to the place of consumption.
Today, one of the biggest problems of the world are the biodegradable and non-biodegradable wastes or which we like to call it as “garbage”. These wastes keep increasing as every day, every week, every month and every year passes causing pollution. Little by little we are running out of places to dump our wastes. Because of this, improper disposal of the wastes is another problem. People who tend to have little or no knowledge about disposing put their garbage at bodies of water, land, animals’ natural habitats and even sewers causing floods, diseases and death.
Another big problem of our world is decreasing supply of oils and gases that are one of the most important things in industry and agriculture. In the middle east, oil has run out causing downfalls of economy. Oil is just a natural element that we cannot easily replace and produce. Scientists are currently studying and working to produce an eco-friendly, sustainable and infinite source of energy. Statement of the Problem
The researchers would like to find out if biodegradable and non-biodegradable gas may be converted to fuel gas. Also for the benefit of the people and the people who will use this product. The researchers will try if this will work with the help of these following questions:
1. What contents of the garbage and waste that makes able to become fuel gas?
2. What are the processes or procedures that are necessary?
3. How will be the product tested?
Biodegradable and Non-Biodegradable garbage may not be converted to fuel gas. Significance of the Study
Fuel gas produced from wastes is not just a simple product that can help you lessen your expenses to using gas from gasoline stores. This product It also helps the environment because it doesn’t have the same contents from other gasoline. This fuel gas produces less carbon dioxide from than other gasoline. With that being said we can see that if the researchers are successful with this study they can create gasoline that is environmentally friendly. An example is that the main cost for global warming is because of green house gases and one of them is carbon dioxide. The fuel gas can help lessen the green house gases because it produces less carbon dioxide. The fuelgas also is cheaper than other gasoline because it is made from garbage so the consumers may save a lot if they buy this product.
This research may benefit the following group:
Fuel gas is friendlier to the environment. It is made from organic materials that don’t harm nature. It is also the best way of conserving energy because it came from recycled wastes. 2. Community
The Community will benefit because they may have cheaper gas that can be used in different ways. 3. Other Researchers and specialists
This study may give insight and motivation to other researchers and specialist to further investigate on the feasibility of garbage to become fuel gas.
Scope and Delimitation
The scope of our study is for the biodegradable and non-biodegradable garbage converted to fuel gas. This study will include how the process is done and what contents of the garbage made it possible to become fuel gas. It will only be studied about fuel gas and not any other gas. Our study is only limited to biodegradable and non-biodegradable garbage so it does not cover anything other than biodegradable and non-biodegradable garbage.
