The second part of the chapter examines the different fuels that can be derived from these raw materials. Internal combustion engines can be run on a variety of fuels instead of petrol or diesel – liquid petroleum gas, natural gas, ethanol, bio-diesel and methanol are all candidates. Approximately one-quarter of the total greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions in Europe can be attributed to the transport sector, with petroleum-derived fuels dominating road transport. This book presents the papers from the Innovations in Fuel Economy and Sustainable Road Transport conference, held in Pune, India, November, Papers examine advances in powertrain, alternative fuels, lightweight vehicles, electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles. fuels and advanced vehicle design.

The Belgian NPF puts a lot of emphasis on electric cars. It contains high estimates for theFile Size: 1MB. Increasing pressure on global reserves of petroleum at a time of growing demand for personal transport in developing countries, together with concerns over atmospheric pollution and carbon dioxide emissions, are leading to a requirement for more sustainable forms of road transport. Major improvements in the efficiency of all types of road vehicles are called for, along with the use of fuels derived from alternative sources, or entirely new fuels.

Alternative fuels, known as non-conventional and advanced fuels, are any materials or substances that can be used as fuels, other than conventional fuels like; fossil fuels (petroleum (oil), coal, and natural gas), as well as nuclear materials such as uranium and thorium, as well as artificial radioisotope fuels that are made in nuclear reactors.. Some well-known alternative fuels include bio Missing: Road Transport.   Clean fuels for transport: Member States now obliged to ensure minimum coverage of refuelling points for EU-wide mobility New EU rules have been adopted today to ensure the build-up of alternative refuelling points across Europe with common standards for their design and use, including a common plug for recharging electric vehicles. Australian studies have been carried out on the impact of E10 and E20 (10% and 20% ethanol fuels respectively) Bio fuels. There are other renewable fuels, known as biodiesel, which are derived from a variety of biological sources such as tallow, canola or soya beans.
