Go Green

Fuel is any material that is burned or altered in order to obtain energy and to heat or to move an object. Fuel releases its energy either through combustion, or nuclear fission.  An important property of a useful fuel is that its energy can be sorted to be released only when needed, and that the release is controlled in such a way that energy can be harnessed to produce work.

Ozone layer

The Ozone layer is part of earth’s atmosphere. It lies about 14 miles above earth surface. The ozone layer protects our planet from harmful radiations of sun. Certain gases, called chlorofluorocarbons, may damage the ozone layer.

Scientists have found that the ozone layer has become thinner over Antarctica each spring since the 1970’s.

Ozone Friendly

A Material is set to be a Ozone Friendly when it does not produce harmful chemicals or gases like chlorofluorocarbons that could destroy the ozone layer in the Atmosphere.

Many countries are now replacing chlorofluorocarbons used in industry with ozone – friendly materials. This ishelping to remove one of the major causes of the depletion of the ozone layer.

Burning fossil fuels has long been known to cause acid rain. It now appears that is has another potentially dangerous side effect – Global Warming. The carbon dioxide (CO2) produced acts as a green house gas in the atmosphere trapping heat from the sun that would otherwise be reflected back into space. Rising levels of CO2 are made worse by deforestation, since plants remove this gas from the air when they photosynthesize. Although CO2 is the worst contributor to Global Warming, Other green house gases include nitrogen dioxide (NO2) from motor vehicle exhausts, and methane (CH4) produced by livestock and bacterial activity in rice paddies. The predicted effects of Global Warming include increasingly chaotic weather patterns and rising sea levels.
