The depletion of fossil fuels has been a major problem for the human race in the comming days. Researches to find proper alternative are still going on.
Biofuel has given some promising results, but it should be developed and used in a right manner. There is a major role of engineers in this process.Keeping this in mind LEADers shyam, sharath and team of SJMIT College organized awareness program for engineering students on behalf of international biofuel day with help of biofuel unit SJMIT.
