Alternative Fuel And Vehicle Technologies

INTRODUCTION

Nowadays, scientists, analysts, and investigator are continuously searching to locate effective fuel optimum means to fix reduce green house gas emission. Though, you will find considerable research starting with mitigate CO2 from existing fuel. Presently, Ethanol has great possibility to minimize CO2 from air as it is blend with farming products and the majority of the existing vehicles support ethanol. On the other hand, LPG is directly produced from gas and increases sustainable balance inside the atmosphere. However, on recent invention i.e. hybrid technology, referred to as electric vehicles convey more wider help to the atmosphere in addition to making certain ‘0’ carbon emission on air.

In the majority of the developing countries like, USA, United kingdom, Australia, Canada, Germany, electric vehicles are gaining popularity due to ecological concern and price of one’s.

This hybrid technology also increases battery storage capacity consequently this become viable solution for contemporary transportation. Battery also known as lithium composite phosphate (LCP) is rechargeable which utilizes LiFePO4 as cathode material and mostly utilized in portable products like mobile phone, camera and laptops. Thus, the majority of the auto maker companies these days increasingly ecological conscious and based on demand they now more concentrate on presenting new type of electric vehicle.

ALTERNATIVE FUEL FOR VEHICLES

Ethanol

Around Australia, the majority of the vehicles operated by ethanol and yet nobody knows how ethanol can impact their vehicles. A current figure shows, 30 % of Australian vehicles will have 10 % of ethanol. Though, the primary agriculture products accustomed to produce ethanol around australia are wheat, wheat starch, sugarcane and sorghum. However, the primary benefit of using ethanol is, organic and reduces polluting of the environment but major disadvantage could it be burns rapidly. Presently, you will find four kinds of ethanol available worldwide, for example E10, E85, E22 and E100 whereby Australia E10 and E85 can be found yet others continue to be on consideration.

E10 around australia

After first of This summer 2003, 10 % ethanol was permitted to combine with normal gas and blending greater than 10 % require engine modification because it was identified that using E20 with 20 % mix frequently makes trouble on unmodified engines.

Problems of E10 (E-10 Ethanol Fuel Problems, n.d)

1. Ethanol 10 damages vehicle engine and carburetor.
2. Water above five percent cause serious damage around the vehicle’s performance.
3. Water freezing in the winter months causes serious impact on performance.

E85 around australia

E85 is appropriate for flex fuel vehicles and presently only Caltex is selling on 40 stores (Monitoring from the Australian oil industry, 2011). Though E85 is extremely eco appropriate although not appropriate for those engines especially, trucks, busses because it damages the fuel system.
