42 (Eprocess ) excludes the chemical enthalpy of the feedstock, it can become very small compared to the numerator (Euseful ). Since dividing a very large number by a very small number can exaggerate comparisons, EROEI can give an exaggerated impression of the relative amounts of energy that can be extracted from different resources. Although EROEI can be useful for comparing energy costs for extracting different kinds of energy resources, energy efficiency should be employed when comparing the fraction of an energy resource that can be converted to finished energy products.
If a molecule is to serve as an energy product, clearly it must be able to undergo an energy releasing (exothermic) reaction within an engine or fuel cell. Conversely, we might expect that an energy absorbing (endothermic) reaction is required to manufacture an energy product. For example, the decomposition of water to produce hydrogen (along with oxygen) is an endothermic reaction. The energy to produce this energy product comes from an energy resource; for example, solar Biorenewable Resources 36 Coal Biomass Petroleum Gasoline 72% Cellulosic biofuels 50% Early refining 20% Fig.
The relative yield Y (not to be confused with mass fractions yi ) can be calculated on either a mass or molar basis, but different operational definitions are required in these two cases, because they involve both reactants and products in their calculation. 17) Biorenewable Resources 18 This ratio is often presented as a percentage by multiplying by 100 and assigning dimensions of wt% to make clear that it is on a mass basis. Mass yields are straightforward to calculate from gravimetric yield data.
