Youth drives motorcycle from bio-fuel

DANG: A youth has developed bio-fuel for running vehicles as an alternative to the petroleum products.

Youth scientist Marshal Roka, of Ghorahi Municipality-11 in Dang district, developed the bio-fuel to drive a motorcycle by processing the resin of Sallo tree.

Organising a news conference on Sunday, in Ghorahi, Roka demonstrated his success by driving the motorcycle, with the bio-fuel prepared from the resin of Sallo tree, around the Ghorahi bazaar.

The bio-fuel could be used as a substitute to the petroleum products though its lab test has not been held so far.

However, Roka has claimed that the bio-fuel is cheaper than petrol and has low fuel consumption rate.

So far, Roka has developed a total of 37 products including breathalyzer, metal detector, bomb disposal device and others.
