Every year on 10 August, World Biofuel Day is observed to create awareness about fossil fuels as an alternative to conventional fossil fuels and highlight the various efforts made by the government in the biofuel sector.
This year the theme of the World Biofuel Day is “Production of Biodiesel from Used Cooking Oil (UCO)”
Biofuels have the benefit of reduction of import dependence, a cleaner environment, additional income to farmers and employment generation.
