‘World Bio-Fuel Day’ was observed by Indian Oil Corporation at Law College Dehradun on 10th August, 2018. Higher Education Minister (Independent Charge) Dr. Dhan Singh Rawat was present as the Chief Guest of the occasion while Hon’ble Chancellor of the University Shri Jitender Joshi, Vice Chancellor Prof. (Dr.) N. K. Joshi and Shri Manoj Jayant, State Level Coordinator, Oil Industry (Uttarakhand) were present as special guests. The programme aimed to create awareness about non fossil-fuels (green fuels). It was inaugurated with the display of bio-fuel based small feature film in a simple and lucid language which inspired the students to take interest in the programme.

Present as Subject Expert, Principal and Scientist of I.I.P, Dehradun, Dr. Neeraj Atre explained the use and utility of bio-fuel. He stated that if we fully utilize our available resources, 40% of fuel requirements of the country can be fulfilled through bio-fuel. He also gave an account of significant researches conducted by Indian Scientists in this direction.

Other experts on the occasion were of the opinion that mixing bio-fuel in the core fuel might give revolutionary results. It was Sir Rudolf Diesel who for the first time on 10th August, 1893 used ground-nut oil to run a mechanical engine. Today, wastes of sugarcane mills and other agricultural remnants are being successfully used as bio-fuels.
