FOSSIL ENERGY

A fossil fuel (oil, natural gas and coal) defines a fuel produced from rocks originating from the fossilisation of living beings (plant and animals) from over 3,5 billion years ago until now. These fuels are only available in limited amounts and are not renewable at human timescale. Energy produced from this type of fuel is known as fossil energy.
