  • Bioethanol mixing is the movable mechanism of fuel consumption

    Bioethanol mixing is applied in automotive industry; it is enough to add 10% of ethanol in gasoline considerably to increase car power and fuel efficiency. Small concentration of ethanol in fuel (to 10%) is not significantly influences on operation of the engine, but with increase of concentration to 85% be required power supply system alteration. Considering that biofuel comes to everyday life ...

  • Life cycle assessment of fuel production for biomass from dry land afforestation

    Biomass has been focused as a fuel resource because of its huge abundance and carbon–neutral characteristics. Thus, we attempted to use tree biomass as the resource to automotive fuel. From the global warming point of view, the biomass energy production from large–scale plantation is required, however, the land use should not be changed from crop field or forest land. In the present paper, the ...
