The Mexican company Biofields has announced plans to construct a plant on the Sonora coast that will produce ethanol from algae. The company hopes its facility, which eventually could produce about 2 billion gallons of fuel per year, would provide a viable alternative to corn-based ethanol. The price of corn has risen sharply in the past two years, partly due to a US campaign to promote the use of that commodity in the production of ethanol.
