  • Oxidation Of Methane To Methanol Lab Report

    1407 Words  | 6 Pages

    Proposed Mechanisms for the Direct Oxidation of Methane to Methanol The oxidation of CH4 usually progresses to C02 and H20 because the intermediates are a series of highly reactive radical reactions and this makes partial oxidation of CH3 into CH3OH very hard. In addition, CH3OH oxidizes faster than CH4 and requires less energy for its oxidation. Industrial attempts to synthesize methanol from methane is usually done indirectly since the direct methods have low methanol specificity and yield. Current

  • Essay on Alternative Sources of Energy

    ESSAY ON ALTERNATIVE SOURCES OF ENERGY The law of conservation says that energy is neither created nor destroyed. When we use energy, it doesn’t disappear. We change it from one form of energy into another. A car engine burns gasoline, converting the chemical energy in gasoline into mechanical energy. Solar cells change radiant energy into electrical energy. Energy changes form, but the total amount of energy in the universe stays the same. Scientists at the Department of Energy think they have

    Investigating the Cause of Global Warming Many people disagree on the issue concerning global warming. Some believe that human activities, various forms of polluting, are the main cause of global warming. Others think that not only have humans not affected the planet by any significant amount, but that not much global warming has even occurred. Many scientists think that pollution is the cause of global warming and the greenhouse effect. There is a lot of evidence to support this theory

    warming. Studies have indicated a rise in the carbon dioxide levels (CO2) in the earth’s atmosphere that can be attributed to the what is known as the greenhouse affect (Simon, Reece, Dickey, 2007). Natural occurring gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, and water vapor act as source for trapping heat into the atmosphere, however CFC’s or chlorofluorocarbons are man made synthetics (Simon et al., 2007). These synthetic

  • Factors in Calculating Emissions

    610 Words  | 2 Pages

    ANSWER 1: I have noticed that I can make significant reductions to my carbon footprint by making some small changes in the following aspects: a) Heating & Cooling: Insulating and caulking the roof/walls, ventilation and shading/awning can reduce the usage heating and cooling systems, which reduce carbon emissions significantly. Having efficient Energy star rated equipment also helps. b) Refrigeration: Maintaining the freezer (above -15 degrees Celsius) and fridge temperatures (between 3 and 5 degrees
