Over on Temas blog, my friend Keith Ripley has a piece on how the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo is getting all of its resources together to study the future of biofuels (http://www.temasactuales.com/temasblog/environmental-protection/sao-paulos-new-bioenergy-research-program/). This is big potatoes in a state which rivals the US in the volume of ethanol it produces.

In the English language synopsis, Keith says:

The state Research Foundation of São Paulo (Fapesp (http://www.fapesp.br/)) has just launched a special program Research on Bioenergy (Bioen (http://www.fapesp.br/materia/3254//programa_fapesp_de_pesquisa_em_bioenergia_bioen.ht m))that aims at marshalling the state's considerable public and privateR&D resources to adavance and apply all knowledge linked to ethanolproduction. São Paulo leads Brazil in ethanol production, and Brazilrivals the US in global production.

There's more in English and considerably more in Portugese. Enjoy
