The article discusses the impact of the growing demand for ethanol on the world's biofuels industry. While global production peaked in 2005, at more than 35 billion liters of ethanol, almost 90% of this was produced by Brazil and the U.S. But even in these two countries, ethanol accounts for 2-3% of U.S. non-diesel fuel use and 40% of Brazil's.
