    ...
    The key to produceing large quantites of ethanol lies in starcking with materials that produce it more effciently that corn does now. while produceing ethanol from the corn uses only the starch portion of the kernel, leaveing the protein, and minerals, and nurtrients for use as food for people or live stock, most researchers agree that using non-food resourses,like wood chips,willow trees,grass and corn is a better long term solution.
    What vehicles can use it? Most of today's comercially avaible vehicles can run on blends of E10, a mix of 10% ethanol and 90% gasoline, which is mandated in some areas of the countries to act as oxygenate additives to improve air quality. in addition many newer vehicles can use E85, which qualifys as an alternative fuel under the energy policy act of 1992. Vehicles that can run E85 gasoline or any mixture of the two are called flexibe fuel vehicles or (ffv). FFV's are wildy availible and include sedans minivans sport utility vehicles and pickup trucks. More than 5 million ffv's have been sold in the U.S. alone.

    HYBRID CARS
    The Technology
    Hybrid cars are a technology the uses and electric motor and battery to run the car making less damiging to the environment, and more cost effective to the owner. Hybrid cars have been around for a long time but have really come into the scene at the turn of the century do to rising concern about the environment. Hybrids have continued to evolve and are now almost completely electric cars that depened on a motor just to charge the battery. Hybrid cars are a great technological advancement in he field of atoumotive travel.

    How do they work?
    There are five key components to a hybrid car the battery, gasoline engine, electric engine, invertor, and the genorator. In low speed accelleration energy from the battery is sent to the invorter powering the invertor giving energy to the electric motor. In normal driving (city driving or free way driving) the gasoline engine starts charging the battery. In full throttle accelleration both the engine and electric engine give power. When going up hill or overtaking the battery, electric motor, and gasoline engine are used to give an extra boost of speed.

    Who developed the cfl bulb?
    Edward e.hammer is the person who invented the CFL light bulb. he is a retired general electric engineer who invented compact fluorescent while working in 1970.he led the development of the CFL lamps in 1973 .
    http://news.cnet.com/father-of-the-compact bulb
    Why was the cfl bulb developed?
    It was developed to use less electricity at home and prevent gas emission that lead to global climate change and to reduce the electric bill. It was also developed because of the oil crisis in 1973 .

    History of the cfl bulb
    Early fluorescent lighting required special fixtures for their magnetic ballast which made them unusable for house hold use.But before this it started in the 19th century. The CFL lamp was also invented by Edward E. Hammer . In the 1890’s cooper invented a new type of lighting which used a little bit of Mercury.These lights were large and heavy.The CFL light bulbs wasn't made till 1976.
