There are nine major areas of energy resources. Nonrenewable energy resources, like coal, nuclear, oil, and natural gas, are available in limited supplies. This is usually due to the long time it takes for them to be replenished. Renewable resources are replenished naturally and over relatively short periods of time.
Similarly one may ask, why soil is a renewable resource?
Soil is a non-renewable resource. Its preservation is essential for food security and our sustainable future. Soil is a finite resource, meaning its loss and degradation is not recoverable within a human lifespan. It is therefore a highly valuable natural resource, yet it is often overlooked.
Is Clay a renewable or nonrenewable resource?
Geologic clay is mostly of silicate minerals containing variable amounts of water. Clay can be extracted through a number of ways. CLAY IS TECHNICALLY A NONRENEWABLE RESOURCE, THOUGH IT CAN BE FORMED OVER HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF YEARS.
