Electric Cars are Coal Burners

What is the Real Carbon Footprint Left by Electric Cars? Around the world, there is an electric car revolution occurring. Chevy, Toyota, Nissan, GM, Volkswagen, Renault, BMW, BYRD, and at least 20 other car manufacturers produce electric cars. Environmental activists, car manufacturers, and governme

Inline Fuel Catalyst: A Surprising Tool To Help You

An inline fuel catalyst is a mechanism with two purposes: increase fuel efficiency — “gas mileage” — and decrease emissions. There are two types of catalysts for vehicles, trucks, and equipment: catalysts for diesel and catalysts for spark engines — gas powered engines. Only inline fuel ca

Fuel Catalyst: We’ll Give You The Truth

There are two kinds of fuel catalysts: diesel fuel catalysts and petroleum fuel catalysts. But, there are a large number of products marketed with the word catalyst. The fact that marketers advertise non-catalysts as catalysts cause confusion. For those looking to improve the fuel mileage of an auto

Diesel Fuel Catalyst: Brilliant Ways For Use

What is a Diesel Fuel Catalyst, How They Work, What Makes One Diesel Fuel Catalyst Superior to Another? The term diesel fuel catalyst is 100 percent appropriate when applied correctly. But, the term is only appropriate when used to describe a true catalyst. Inappropriately, the label is often used t

Emissions from Alternative Fuels

Environmental Impact of “Clean” Fuels from Beginning of Life Cycle to Combustion Emissions from alternative fuels may actually exceed those of fossil fuels. Though used synonymously, “alternative” fuels and “clean” fuels are not the same. The adjective clean — with respect to fossil fu

Life Cycle of Coal Versus Natural Gas

The life cycle of coal determines its carbon footprint. Its lifecycle is what determines whether or not it is a clean fossil fuel or a dirty fossil fuel. The exact same can be said for natural gas. Each fossil fuel has a different life cycle. The extraction/production; refining/conditioning; transpo

Energy Density of Alternative Fuels

Why Petroleum, Diesel, and Coal are Here to Stay Not all fuels are equal. The energy density of alternative fuels is particularly low. The sum of energy in a gallon of diesel, for example, is about 10 percent higher than the energy in a gallon of gasoline.  There is a causal correlation between ene

Energy Density — Calorific Value — of Boiler Fuels

When purchasing a boiler, there are two decisions to make. Regardless of the purpose of the boiler — be it for an industrial company or a family with a small home, — the two decisions are the same. One decision is in regard to boiler type, “boiler configuration.” The other decision concerns
