Fossil Fuels PowerPoint By: Delia Arciniega Mrs. Sipiera Period: 7/8

What is fossil fuel? : 

What is fossil fuel? Fossil fuels- Natural resources, such as coal, oil and natural gas and produce carbon dioxide when burnt.

Different Types of Fossil Fuels : 

Different Types of Fossil Fuels Coal- coal is formed with the decay of the earth coal is also found in mines. Oil- “is a liquid fossil fuel that is formed from the remains of marine microorganisms deposited on the sea floor” Natural Gas- “is a gaseous fossil fuel that is versatile, abundant and relatively clean compared to coal and oil

Coal : 

Coal Coal is formed inside of the earth. And it is dug up in mines where they are found. Coal formed from the remains of vegetation The most important element in the plant material is carbon. Carbon gives coal most of its energy.

Stages of Coal : 

Stages of Coal Coal forms from the remains of plants which died from when dinosaurs were still alive and the wetlands that surrounded it. First is, lignite then sub bituminous coal, bituminous coal and eventually anthracite coal.

Coal uses : 

Coal uses Coal is used for heating and bringing electricity where needed

Oil Formation : 

Oil Formation Oil forms from bacteria living in the ocean and sea from millions of years ago.

Oil uses : 

Oil uses Oil helps make diesel fuel and helps create motor gasoline like cars and trucks and buses.

Natural Gas Formation : 

Natural Gas Formation Natural gas forms from plankton remains and smaller living organisms that live in water.

Natural Gas uses : 

Natural Gas uses Natural gas is used for paint, medicine, propane, fertilizers and some others and is very common.

Refineries : 

Refineries A refinery is a production facility composed of a group of chemical engineering unit processes and unit operations refining certain materials or converting raw material into products of value.

Exxon Valdez Spill : 

Exxon Valdez Spill The Exxon Valdez oil spill occurred in Prince William Sound, Alaska, on March 24, 1989, when the Exxon Valdez, an oil tanker bound for Long Beach, California, hit Prince William Sound’s Bligh Reef and spilled an estimated minimum 10.8 million US gallons (40.9 million litres, or 250,000 barrels) of crude oil. It is considered to be one of the most devastating human-caused environmental disasters ever to occur in history. As significant as the Valdez spill was — the largest ever in US waters — it ranks well down on the list of the world's largest oil spills in terms of volume released. However, Prince William Sound's remote location (accessible only by helicopter, plane and boat) made government and industry response efforts difficult and severely taxed existing plans for response. The region is a habitat for salmon, sea otters, seals and seabirds. The oil, originally extracted at the Prudeho Bay Field, eventually covered 1,300 miles.
