Switching to alternative sources such as electric cars can help pull this number down significantly. Electric cars are more affordable as Electricity is cheaper than gas, and can come from renewable resources such as solar and wind power. Electric cars pollute less than gas-powered cars, which makes them better for our environment. Electric cars are much more reliable and require less maintenance than gas-powered cars. By using domestically generated electricity rather than relying on foreign oil, we can achieve energy independence and will no longer need to engage in costly wars in the Middle East to secure an energy supply.
Changing to bio degradable paint pots – Chic Paints Limited’s decision not to change to ultra-green bio degradable paint pots, would have a lasting effect on the environment as the current paint pots used would take so much longer to dispose when they go to be recycled, whereas the new proposed bio degradable pots would shave years off the carbon footprint that is being left by Chic Paints Limited as they would degrade up to 95% biologically after they have been finished with, that wouldn’t just cut down the carbon footprint left by Chic Paints Limited, but also the same goes for the trade customers that buy the paints from Chic Paints
CCS fitted plants experience reductions in overall efficiency by 8-30% because of ‘energy penalty’. Though consequentially, CCS plants could result in reduced CO2 emissions and improved environmental quality, the efficiency losses in the process leads to elevated use of fossil inputs which in turn results in more fuel extraction, need for more CO2 transport and storage, more particulate pollution (air and water) and landscape destruction and geo-engineering. Thus, there could be significant spin-off effects from an ethical perspective. For instance, need for more fuel extraction shall further reinforce the ethical contestations on the already notorious mining industry. Leakage (slow and abrupt) of CO2 during transport and storage besides posing health risks to humans and local flora and fauna may balance out the net effect of CCS on global warming.
Effects of Using Bio Diesel as a Main Fuel Source The cost of fuel is an increasing problem and the cost of obtaining crude oil to process into many kinds of fuels has risen. By replacing diesel fuel with an alternative such as bio diesel, we can lower the cost of fuel. Although using this fuel has a few draw backs, they are overcome by the beneficial effects. A few of the effects of using this fuel as a main source are lower prices, higher availability, and climate adaptability. Bio-diesel is a relatively easy to produce, and low cost fuel.
Future possibilities and environment benefits, there’s a study that it lessen the air pollution by using it. Abundant domestic production, increased resale value and more affordable maintenance. As evidenced in the Environment Protection Agency, natural gas as the cleanest fossil fuel was used in many ways to help reduce the emissions of pollutants into the environment. Burning natural gas than other fossil fuels emits fewer harmful pollutants and increase the reliance on potentially reduces emission of those many harmful pollutants. The use of natural gas does not significantly contribute in the formation of the smog as it emits lower nitrogen oxide and doesn’t have particulate matters.
Less driving will be the best thing for the environment because it means fewer emissions. As bad as the gas price is today, biking to work would be a great way to offset the high gasoline price. Biking to work is a creative way to save money. Even if someone only rides
The one of the most important current benefits of geothermal energy is that it is essentially limitless and is considered clean, producing around one-sixth of the carbon dioxide that a comparative clean natural-gas- power plant produces. Costs of geothermal energy are initially expensive but much lower than other sources to operate after the initial costs. Drilling and construction of power plants and pipelines can be relatively high but looking at the cost long-term, it is significantly
Technology for a less invasive co-existence is available, therefore, cars should be more efficient because efficiency will help to reduce emissions that contribute to greenhouse gases and global warming, will help to conserve fossil fuels, and will hopefully make it possible to leave less of a carbon footprint on our Earth. Transportation has become a necessary evil in our society. With the aid of technological advancements, the effects of such transportation don’t necessarily have to be quite so “evil”. It is true that over the last hundred years motorized vehicles have steadily become more efficient. Sheer numbers of vehicles though have significantly contributed to increased and detrimental levels of air pollution.
1.0 Introduction: Xcellerate is a new concept of energy drink that will take the energy drink market by storm. Using lots of Vitamin B6 and B12 the drink is able to provide the same energy boost as a normal caffeine and sugar based drink, but is a much healthier alternative. The drink will be available in one flavour upon its initial launch in order to reduce the chance of brand dilution as well as easing manufacturing and distribution burdens. The brand will be priced in the medium to higher end price bracket in order to compete with premium brands and to avoid being associated with the low quality alternatives that compete solely on price. The main competitors in this segment for Xcellerate will be Red Bull, Monster Energy and Livita, however Red Bull’s dominance is easily identifiable with 5.6 million litres sold in 2011 (Marmet Sizes - Historic off trade volume - mn litres Malaysia, 2011).
Technology Trends In The Present And In The Future The technological trends of the present and the future make and will continue to make the world ecological cleaner, more secure, and people’s lives will become easier. The world will become ecological cleaner with the latest technological trends based on industrial production, daily life, and energy supplying. Firstly, because of the industrial production improvements, the emissions of greenhouse gases and the waste products of the manufacturing process will be lowered. By replacing the fossil fuels in plastic with waste products such as methane (Jennifer Bogo), the emissions of carbon dioxide and the cost of the new plastic will be reduced (Jennifer Bogo). Cars’ design will require less material
