Should The Racing Industry Be Forced To Use Biofuels?
Should the racing industry be forced to use biofuels is the common discussion among the racing industry. That question is basicly from the statement that, “The time for change is not now, but yesterday!”( www.biofuelsracing.com) This means we don't have a moment to waste. The world's health, economy, & overall environmental stability is in a perilous state. That's why it's critical that we come together & take immediate action to rectify the mismanagement of fossil fuels, burning gas, pollution, poor resources decisions, & the like. All of us share important roles in being good stewards to the planet & share a responsibility to sustain it as best we can for future generations. But how?
Biofuels is the only answer. Biofuels is type of fuel whose energy is derived from biological carbon fixation. Biofuels include fuels derived from biomass conversion, as well as solid biomass, liquid fuels and various biogases.(Wikipedia)
There are already two generation of biofuels. The first time generation is the conventional biofuels made from sugar, starch, and vegetable oil (Bioalcohols, biodiesel, green diesel, vegetable oil, bioethera, biogas, syngas and solid biofuels). The second generation biofuels are biofuels produced from sustainable feedstock. Sustainability of a feedstock is defined among others by availability of the feedstock, impact on GHG emissions and impact on biodiversity and land use, such as cellulosic ethanol, algae fuel, biohydrogen, biomethanol, DMF, BioDME, Fischer-Tropsch diesel, biohydrogen diesel, mixed alcohols and wood diesel.(Wikipedia)
For that reason biofuels are much less harmful when it comes to emissions into the air, because traditional fossil based fuels like gasoline and regular diesel have high sulfur and carbon emissions, as well as other greenhouse gases. Biofuels burn much cleaner, with few to none of these global warming causing emissions, and this is much better for...
