Bio Projects

There are numerous advantages and benefits to mankind in developing alternative energy sources. While many countries have started down the track of setting up resources and infrastructure to develop alternative energy such as bio fuels, wind and water as well as solar power there is still huge scope to increases the levels of energy created.

Mankind's technological progress and our developing societies as a result have come along way by harnessing energy for electricity and using fuel to power vehicles we have created the ability for huge industries. To date these industries have relied on nonalternative power sources such as fossil fuels.

These sources are extracted from the ground and need to be processed so we can harness the fuel and electricity. They are commonly referred to as coal, natural gas and hydrocarbon fuels. We rely on them heavy and the costs are pollution and usage of our natural resources, which are not infinite.

Perhaps one of the biggest stumbling blocks in developing alternative energy is the cost some third world countries and even private companies that seek to find independence from hydro carbon created energy don't have the necessary funds to be able to do so, this is where alternative energy finance comes into play.

By selling surplus energy created to other business you can offset costs and some large power generating companies will even buy excess energy off you. With the looming threat of global warning and possible peak oil production being reached There has never been a better time to seek financing for alternative energy projects, whether it be an ethanol energy project, wind farm turbines, hydro electric, coal bed methane, seam gas, green energy, sustainable energy, feothermal energy, hot rock energy, or clean coal.

Before applying for finance for any project you first need to have completed all research and have a development blueprint but there are many experts out there that can consult with you on how to achieve this. Governments around the world are desperately backing alternative energy projects, but banks won't give you a fair go - they see alternative energy projects as providing poor returns, or say the project teams lack experience!

The time for action is now before the natural resources mankind relies on for energy manufacture is totally depleted. Mankind must also stop the damage being done to our planet through the high pollution traditional energy manufacture causes.

If we wait till the fossil fuels are totally depleted before we develop sustainable alternative energy sources we may see a return to the horse and carriage days and having to resort for candles for light and indoor fires for heating.

We must all take responsibility now before its too late or we will see a huge reduction in our population and backward steps in our society functions as a whole as we are totally reliant on fossil fuels not only to power our own vehicles but to transport food and other goods globally.

Thankfully there are companies that are willing to help others by providing the finance needed for individuals or companies to develop highly needed alternative energy sources

Hydrocarbons – compounds composed of carbon and hydrogen.

Hydrocracking – a severe, high temperature, high pressure refinery process that converts heavy black oil into gasoline and diesel fuel by cracking or breaking up larger molecules, in the presence of hydrogen and a catalyst.

Hydrotreating – a refinery process that reacts a fraction of crude oil with hydrogen at high temperature and pressure, in the presence of a catalyst, to improve colour and odour, and reduce sulphur content.

Low sulphur diesel fuel – fuel that contains less than 500 parts per million (0.05 wt per cent) sulphur, required for on-road applications, and may be used off-road.

Lubricity – The property of diesel fuel that lubricates moving parts in fuel pumps and fuel injectors to minimize wear.

Off-road diesel fuel – refers to diesel fuel that is used for off-road purposes (i.e., mining, farming, marine, etc.). Off-road diesel fuel is frequently dyed red or "marked" to show that it is exempt from provincial road taxes.

Regular sulphur diesel fuel – fuel that contains less than 5,000 parts per million (0.5 wt per cent) sulphur, may not be used on-road, and is usually used in off-road applications such as farming, forestry and marine.
