  1. Fossil Fuels Ben Barendrecht, Patrick kap, Joris Voogt

  2. What are fossilfuels? • Oil • Gas • Coal • Energy richcarbohydraatmolecules

  3. How are theyformed? • Plants and animals die. • Their remains stay behind • Over time they get covered with large amount of stone and sand • Under the influence of pressure a chemical reaction takes place which changes the remains in usable forms of carbohydrates • f.e. C6O6H12 -> CH4 + …..

  4. Where are they most commenly found?

  5. Where are they most commenly found?

  6. Where are they most commenly found?

  7. How do we get them out of the ground? • Coal • Large open area mines • Mineshafts • Oil • Oil platforms • Pumpjacks • Gas • Gas platforms • Drilling rigs

  8. How do we draw Energy fromthem? (oil) • Oil is boiled • Creating different layers. • Used for machines and production process for medicines and chemical goods

  9. How do we draw Energy from them? (Coal) • Mainly produces heat and electricity • When burned it produces steam • Producing electricity

  10. How do we draw Energy from them? (Coal) • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SeXG8K5_UvU&feature=player_embedded

  11. How do we draw Energy from them? (Gas) • Energy taken with gas turbines • By rotating a dynamo • Cleaner than other FF fuels • is the best domestic heating fuel

  12. 87.67 % of the total energy consumption in 2012 is being produced by fossil fuels 2006 - Fossil fuel consumption of total energy consumption per country America 85.6% Netherlands 92.5% Belgium 74.1% Germany 81.6 % Sweden 33.4% Switzerland 53.9% FOSSIL FUEL USAGE

  13. Proved reserves 2005 – 2007 Coal: 905 billion metric tonnes left. Oil: 1119 billion barrels to 1317 billion barrels left. Gas: 175 – 181 trillion cubic metres left. Daily production 2006 Coal: 16,761,260 metric tonnes. Oil: 84,000,000 barrels. Gas: 2960 billion cubic metres. Forecast(depletion)

  14. FORECAST(DEPLETION) • For how long do we still have fossil fuels? • Using the information given on the previous dia Coal: 148 years Oil: 43 years Natural gas: 61 years • Most optimistic guess Coal: 417 years Oil: 43 years Natural gas: 167 years

  15. FOSSIL FUEL USAGE (FUTURE) • What to consider • Population growth • Economy • Technology • Renewable energy • Depletion numbers of fossil fuels

  16. Use more renewable energy New inventions Save energy yourself! How do we get the most out of the remainingquantities?

  17. Very large amounts of electricity can be generated in one place using coal, fairly cheaply. You can build fossil-fuelled power stations almost anywhere, as long as you can transport the fuel to the power station. The transportation of gas and oil to power stations is easy. PRO’S OF FOSSIL FUELS

  18. Pollution (carbon dioxide and acid rain) Notrenewable on short terms Large area’s of landscape are ruinedbecause of miningand landscape is neededto store coalnear the power stations CON’S OF FOSSIL FUELS

  19. Right now, we can’t live without fossil fuels Preserve fossil fuels We need to change our energy production Conclusion
