BANGALORE: Former Presient A P J Abdul Kalam believes it might be possible to run all vehicles in India using biofuel in ten years.

“In a decade’s time, it may be possible that all the vehicles on the road will be be run on 100 per cent biofuel”, the eminent technocrat said after inaugurating Robert Bosch Centre for Research in Cyber Physical Systems here on Tuesday.

The centre was launched by Bosch, a global auto components major, with a proposed investment of Rs 140 crore over a ten year period at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore.

“Bosch has to work in developing a fuel injection system for such an eventuality (all vehicles running on biofuel)”, Kalam said, and also suggested to the company to develop a fuel injection system for a potential diesel engine which would run with 40 per cent water and 60 per cent diesel.

Bosch said cyber-physical systems would address green technology and conserve energy in buildings. (PTI)
