Transcript of Renewable Resources- Gas

Replace carbon monoxide-causing fuels
protect the environment
provide a cheap fuel
replace nonrenewable resources
Reasons for use
The fuel is based off any location where H20 is abundantly present.
The first converter was created in Germany
Primary location of source
takes a longer period of time to create
expensive to make the machine
hard to replace petroleum and coal throughout the world
long conversion process
How it works
Through the Fischer-Tropsh process, H20 and CO2 are used to create a liquid hydrocarbon that is used as a fuel
replaces Gasoline (non renewable resource
abundant in quantity
protects the environment
Cheaper prices
Renewable Resources- Synthetic Fuel
By: Cullen Osborne and Tiffany Elam
-Also called "water gas"
-Stemmed from the experiment of using corn to create potent liquid ethanol

Development of use
1925, Fisher-Tropsh process (a collection of chemical reactions that converts a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen into liquid hydrocarbons)
The German company, Sunfire, believes the technology will be refined, and after obtaining regulatory permission they hope to offer it for commercial exploitation by 2016
Future development
Pioneers in Development
Leaders in the Industry

Reactants and Products
Technological Advances
new, high quality reactor and converter
refined technology
engineering installation capable of synthesizing petroleum-based fuels
the process takes CO2 from water and then hydrogen gas from water vapor and converts it into liquid hydro carbons
