Let’s face it. Fossil fuels are killing the planet. Not only has the world’s population grown exponentially, but so has the world’s use of these non-renewable energy sources. The exhaust from the burning of coal and petroleum has put hundreds of tons of pollutants into the air. The chemicals we are pumping into the atmosphere are heating up the planet, melting glaciers and the ice caps, creating stronger, more devastating storms, and making it harder for animal life to survive.
The population of the world is in billions today, and it is increasing every day. This puts a huge strain on energy resources. Our lifestyle consumes a lot of electricity, and to make it available to all will be quite difficult in the coming years, unless new methods of electricity generation are developed. As an answer to the energy crisis researchers, in tandem with governments and private companies, are working on a few ecofriendly and unique methods of electricity generation. So, let’s take a look at some remarkable technologies that are being developed:
Zhang and his team of Virginia Tech researchers suggest an economically cheaper alternative that can replace our fossil fuel awes. The associate professor of biological systems engineering, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the College of Engineering, Y.H. Percival Zhang goes on to say, “Our new process could help end our dependence on fossil fuels” So, how did they manage to find an answer to the problem that can potentially untangle the energy crisis of modern world?
