They are an alternative, but there is not enough to replace fossil fuels

What are four types of biomass that can be converted into alternative fuels?

i think that's she thinks is why do they have to have alternative fuels that's just watse of time

No. Alternative energy means energy sources other than fossil fuels.

alternative resource or just alternative

There are several alternative fuels for a diesel engine. Some alternatives include Biodiesel and vegetable oil.

Alternative fuels can be better in that they are generally cleaner than oil and gasoline. Most alternative fuels are renewable, which means there can be a steady supply for a long time. Oil is not renewable. Development of new alternative fuels also can fuel the economy and new jobs. Alternative fuels have the potential to replace the oil economy, it is just a question of if the fuel can be produced efficiently and be sold at a practical price for people.

yes, there are tons of alternative fuels besides oil. i am doing a research project right now in my English class on alternative fuels. so far, i have found biomass fuels, biodiesel, natural gas, alcohol, and french fry oil. hope you can search farther into what you have learned from me....

There aren't many cars powered by alternative fuels because some cost more and are hard to make and other fuels don't get you very far.

do you mean fuels? nuclear energy is the best alternative energy source.

Because to date there is no viable alternative to fossil fuels, that are plentiful and cost effective.

Fossil fuels are exhaustible. Electric energy is an alternative.

Fossil fuels come from fossilied plant matter in the ground. Alternative fuels are alternatives to fossil fuels, and these are mainly carbon fuels that take their carbon from carbon dioxide in the atmosphere (as fossil fuels do) but on a carbon cycle with a much shorter term. An example is wood, which can be burned as more trees are growing and absorbing carbon dioxide.

Hydrogen fuels could be an alternative if we come to a point where we can solve all the dangerous problems with hydrogen. Hydrogen fuels would be a good alternative but at this point and time hydrogen is way to unstable, so for now electric and ethanol are the way to go for an alternate fuel source.

Solar energy is a potential alternative for fossil fuels. It is a renewable source of energy and will be available as long as the sun lasts.

Alternative Fuels &amp; Raw Materials

Some cheap alternative fuels include the use of biodiesel, bioalcohol, chemically stored electricity, hydrogen, vegetable oil, and non-fossil methane.

There is no viable alternative, and thus you cannot stop the usage of fossil fuels in the world.

The main advantage is that the government earns a lot of taxes on fossil fuels. Another advantage is the energy density, because it is higher than on alternative fuels.
