Three Fuel Technologies Seen as Best Future Energy Sources
The Apec Center for Technology Forsight has come up with three alternative energy sources which are seen as having the biggest impact in the coming decades. In the meeting organized by Thailand, Taiwan, and Canada, unconventional hydrocarbon, bio-fuel, and hydrogen technologies should be at the for-front of alternative energy development.
Unconventional hydrocarbon energy would come from extracting oil from tar sand, oil shale and methane hydrates. Bio-fuel is a renewable fuel that can be produced nationally and locally from agricultural and forest products and waste. Hydrogen is by far the cleanest fuel source available, but still requires further advancements in technology to be practical and safe for widespread use.
