However, one Pakistani scientist that has somehow actually managed to convert farm waste to fuel and has a practical plan to promote this area. Syed Hussain Abid has successfully designed and engineered a mechanism which at the best converts straw from wheat, barley, and sugar cane into ethanol. He believes that his method also provide away the best help as to make ethanol from millions of tons of straw that would otherwise be wasted.
Pakistani Engineer Turns Farm Waste To Fuel
It is to be mentioned that this man is the graduate of Imperial College of London and he holds a Master’s degree in innovation design engineering. All through the help of the 50 million tons of straw waste at his disposal, Hussain can easily carry on top of his research to find out a better and more efficient method for the purpose of the fuel consumption. This can be ultimately used as being the auto mobile fuel or as a safer and so as the cleaner way to power stoves in kitchens across the rural areas in the country.
Ethanol is already used away as being one of the major source of motor fuel additive in so many of the developing economies. This is an environment friendly fuel that can be used as it burns and emits less harmful pollutants across the atmosphere. Some of the common blends of ethanol fuel include on with the E 10. It is commonly used in the USA as which contains up to 10% ethanol. Another blend of ethanol is known as E85 which contains 85% ethanol and is also used on top of widely across the world.
According to Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) that superior monitors the use of alternative and environmentally-friendly fuels globally as the US represents the biggest export market for ethanol worldwide. It is currently exporting the fuel into the below mentioned major country places:
In addition to these countries, there have been almost 35% of the global ethanol imports go to Latin America. This is making it the second largest market after the US. Experts have often predict that the global ethanol market will grow to US $53.1 billion by the year 2025.
Currently, Pakistan has been successfully involved as it imports fuel which costs over $20 billion every year. Using the medium of the ethanol as a fuel additive can help Pakistan decrease its over-dependence on top of the imported fuel. Government has not been emphasizing much on the importance of ethanol as being the fuel and neither the research department nor the private sector is moving towards any breakthroughs right into this field. The only promising prospect was when at the time PSO launched an E10 Ethanol fuel blend in the yea 2006 that was later discontinued.
It will be coming out to be the safer and cleaner way to power stoves in kitchens across the rural areas in the country. Ethanol is already used as a major source of motor fuel additive in so many of the developing economies.
