Energy source of Non-Fossil Origin
Finding alternatives to conventional fuels is the need of the day. As the world energy demand rises, the sources of fossil fuel are rapidly depleting. If the world goes for alternatives energy sources, we can abolish the hegemony of OPEC and other oil-producing countries, thereby reducing their stranglehold on the world economy and stop the global warming juggernaut that threatens our very existence.

From algae, to compressed air, all sorts of sources are being explored to supplant crude oil, as the energy mainstay of the world. Let us get briefly introduced to some of these alternatives.
