By Srinivas Chowdary Sunkara // petrobazaar // 10th July, 2019.


Petrol diesel prices in India are changed daily in line with a rise and fall of global crude prices. Following the daily price revision of auto fuels in India, Petrol and diesel prices are remained unchanged today across the country. Petrol is being sold at Rs.72.9 and diesel is offered at Rs.66.49 a liter in the capital city of India, Delhi. 


Researchers in South Korea have made a major breakthrough in using bacteria to sustainably and efficiently produce bio fuels. The team of scientists from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) report that  they have developed a new kind of engineered microorganisms that are capable of producing greater volumes of the fatty acids that make up biodiesel than ever before. This process would save huge amounts of organic material and agricultural products for its creation, taking up valuable land area that could otherwise be used for food production.
