The article reports that global biodiesel production is projected to grow from 2006-2020, according to the International Energy Agency. According to Sergio Trindade, director of science and technology at International Fuel Technology, biofuel demand had grown as consumers looked for cheaper alternatives to high-priced oil and because of environmental concerns. Global fuel ethanol production is estimated to triple to 120 billion litres/year over this period from current 40 billion litres/year levels.
