non-renewable resources

Non-renewable resources refer to the natural resources that cannot be regenerated in a long time after human exploitation and utilization. It mainly refers to all kinds of minerals, rocks and fossil fuels in nature, such as peat, coal, oil, natural gas, metal minerals, non-metal minerals, etc.

After human exploitation and utilization, non-renewable natural resources are called non-renewable resources, which are formed in a long geological period in a certain stage, certain region and certain conditions during the long evolutionary history of the earth. It forms very slowly compared to the development of human society, and regenerates slowly or hardly at all compared to other resources. [1]

Human development and utilization of non-renewable resources will only consume, but it is impossible to maintain their original reserves or regeneration.

Among them, some resources can be reused, such as gold, silver, copper, iron, lead, zinc and other metal resources, and some resources can not be reused, such as coal, oil, natural gas and other fossil fuels. When they are used as energy and burned, although energy can be converted from one form to another, as the original form of matter no longer exists, its form has changed.

These natural resources can be divided into renewable resources and non-renewable resources according to whether they are renewable or not.

When they are used as energy and burned, although energy can be converted from one form to another, its original physical form no longer exists and its form has changed.

What resources in nature are non-renewable?

Natural resources refers to the nature can be used by human production and life of material and energy. Such as water resources, land resources, mineral resources, forest resources, wild animal resources, climate resources and Marine resources. These natural resources can be divided into renewable resources and non-renewable resources according to whether they are renewable or not.

Natural gas, oil, coal, iron ore and other mineral resources are non-renewable resources, they use a little less, can not be re – generated. Therefore, no matter non-renewable resources or renewable resources, we should pay attention to protection and rational use.
