Unit 2.3: The wider impact of chemistry

The energy problem– huge and increasing amounts of energy are needed by the expanding developing population from both non-renewable and renewable sources.

Impacts of energy production and chemical synthesis

1.       Fossil and biomass fuels – all fuels are derived from solar energy acting on plants and micro – organisms. The rate of production of fossil fuels is a lot slower than the rate we are using them

2.       Carbon neutrality – this is achieved with combustible fuels sources
