Creating High Octane Jet Fuel From Biomass

Creating High Octane Jet Fuel From Biomass

It is no secret – the higher the octane of the fuel the more expensive it is. That is why jet fuel is typically so expensive. While utilising ethanol (a fuel that is converted from biomass) is not a new technological discovery really, creating butanol from biomass is. Butonol expels much more energy when burnt than ethanol (approximately thirty percent more). Creating butonol doesn’t require specific crops grown for the practice either – unlike ethanol – in fact, butonol can be made from old wood chips and plant stalks. At the forefront of this research is a company called Gevo.

Butanol can be converted into jet fuel because butanol is one of the chemicals in gasoline. To manufacture butanol on a commercial scale it will take some time to develop facilities to pump out a significant volume of butanol (then jet fuel) so the reality of utilising butanol is a ways off yet. It is a highly sustainable fuel source because plant waste can be converted into butanol instead of utilising large tracks of farmable land to grow specific crops for conversion into butanol. In fact, butanol is not only good for jet fuel; a typical car will have no problem running on butanol without requiring extra gasoline to water it down (this is required of ethanol – many companies only mix ten percent ethanol into their gasoline mix because ethanol is a lower octane than gasoline).

While there is no promise that butanol (or jet fuel refined from butanol) is able to have any real impact on the price of gasoline – one thing is certain, it will lower our dependence on fossil fuels and the ecological impact of siphoning it from the ground. It is really up to people to start funding research into such projects so that they can become commercially viable for future generations.…

Best Way to Get iPad 2 Ebooks? How I Download Ebooks for the iPad 2

Best Way to Get iPad 2 Ebooks? How I Download Ebooks for the iPad 2

I brought the iPad 2 a few days ago and I am very impressed with it as both a replacement for my laptop in terms of internet surfing and as a ereader to replace my old hardback book collection. The iPad 2 is a very sleek design and is bursting with features including new cameras and wireless internet options. The one fault I have with it tho is finding good quality ebooks that I want to read (which is the main reason I got this gadget).

I have found 2 particular methods I would like to share with you as they are by far the easiest and best ways I know of to get ebooks.

The first is a service called scribd, which is basically a totally free service that allows users to sign up and then browse hundreds of ebooks, white papers, comics and news articles all in one place, It is excellent and has allowed me to find hundreds of well know titles available for free download once you sign up.

The problems are you can often get viruses and spyware from books from scammer placing books on the site, and it doesn’t always allow users to download the literature and then some of the titles are illegally placed on the site by people who do not own the copyright to the books so you are sometimes illegally getting access to books. It is however brilliant as an online library.

The Second method is a Service called Ebooks for iPad, which is a brand new online service which you must subscribe to for a small fee of 20 dollars but then you get access to literally tens of thousands of free ebooks, The beauty of this service is once you are a member you have access to the entire library and call download any book you like from the online library with no restrictions or limits. What I like most about iPad ebooks is, unlike scribd it doesn’t have the same copyright concerns for the authors of books and absolutely no worries about viruses and spyware. The iPad ebooks service has the best quality ebooks I have found with all works available in the same format and compatible with the kindle, iPad and all other ereaders making it excellent for users. It also allows users direct downloads straight to their devices with no hassle and little effort.

I hope you find this useful and get all the ebooks you wish, while you can buy ebooks from other places online they are often $10 or more so paying a small subscription for a service like iPad ebooks is a small price for the access you gain.…

Why Did The iPad Revolutionize The Gadget World?

Why Did The iPad Revolutionize The Gadget World?

The iPad is the latest gadget by Apple that combines the interface of the iPhone with the functionality you could find on a personal computer and turning it into a tablet computer. The boom of tablet computers has made it so much easier to have a device that you can carry just about everywhere with all the functionality you could expect.

And what kind of functionality are we talking about? First of all, for the fact that you have access to the Apple Store and with it, to the numerous apps that are being developed for the system every day. That way you can be assured that whether you want to use the iPad for, you’ll have a solution ready for you.

One thing that truly stands out in the device is the screen, which is really clear, vivid, with great darks, and one that you can use even in the sunniest places, unlike most screens. It’s truly amazing what Apple has accomplished with it. Every time I look at it I still get impressed at how good it actually is. I own the iPad 3 and the retina display really makes a difference in terms of what is the standard in any type of display.

A great thing about the iPad is that you can browse the web with it and still take it everywhere you want. It’s like being able to take the world wide web with you. And you know as well as I do that the information in on the Internet. Taking it everywhere means that you’ll be able to get access to any piece of information on the go (for as long as you can get an internet connection, which isn’t too hard these days, with all the technology around us). I’m sure you’ll take advantage of the fact that you can read your e-mail, chat with your friends, read your latest e-book, listen to your favorite music, and watch that movie that you’re lacking time to see.

The portability is really what it’s all about. The battery life is also great and will last for an entire day as you’d expect. But it can be costly. Unless of course you opt to go to the free route. You may have the luck to get access to a testing unit from Apple. It’s a fully fledged model that isn’t a work in progress. Simply, you’ll have access to the latest firmware updates before everyone else for testing purposes.…

4 Key Reasons why VPS Hosting is the Top Choice for smbs across India

In markets like India VPS hosting is an option that not only allows you to secure your files but also make changes to the plans one opts for, making it more flexible in nature.

With VPS hosting, you can scale your storage space as much as you want.

This is because in India VPS hosting service providers facilitate deployers with enough resources to store their information without any hiccups. Take any VPS hosting plan and you will see that you can easily add or remove resources as and when you want. In fact, many cite that  SSD VPS with its storage is much similar to cloud VPS, but honestly speaking it is not the same. Anyway, you can read more about it to debunk this misconception here.

2. Upgrade or downgrade plans anytime

In extension to what we mentioned above, in India VPS hosting comes at cheap to moderate prices. Within this range, a deployer generally may see unmetered bandwidth with 20-30GB of hard disk space and high speed memory to boost your website’s hosting. Such plans generally take care of a large size of daily traffic and have a very very little chance of facing a downtime because high traffic or slow page speed issue. However, with VPS plans, this is not the issue. You can upgrade or downgrade the plans anytime as per needs.

3. Dedicated IP with more bandwidth

A key element in a VPS hosting is dedicated IP to host your domain and website. This helps you from the point of view of SEO as well as having stability for your hosting without having to share an IP with some other entity. Additionally, in India VPS hosting is deployed because SMBs need more traffic for their websites which needs to be accommodated with the help of bandwidth. This is one of the key reasons why a dedicated IP and high bandwidth are important for an SMB that is just about to host their own business website.

4. Control panel, configuration and security

After you get a VPS hosting, you will at some point in time need a control panel …
