The article reports on the importance of constructing an engaging and interactive model for measuring the carbon dioxide produced by an average person in a single month. It offers information the design of the model that would help measure the carbon footprint of an indiviuals. It reports on the importance of educating the public in respect of carbon footprint and the factors that affect it and provide information relating to alternative fuels.

    The article reports that according to a study by researcher James Hileman and his team, some biofuels can emit as much as 10 times more carbon dioxide than conventional sources. Calculating total impact of any fuel source is complicated. Hileman said that society would calculate and compare the...

    We compare two different techniques for the extraction of biodiesel from macroalgae: the thermochemical liquefaction and the extraction using supercritical carbon dioxide (sc-CO2). The first allows to use wet material, while sc-CO2 requires dry material and uses moderate temperature and pressure...
