Biodiesel in Mexico, coming your way?

In Chiapas recently, Governor Juan Sabines of the PRD-run state opened the first biodieselera, or biodiesel "gas station" for cars. The fuel will be based on jatropha and palm tree oil, it appears, but also used cooking oil from restaurants as well as from rastros porcinos - pig pens! Will it smell?

In Veracruz, moreover, the state institute for bioenergy also is promoting the production of sugar cane, sweet sorghum, catrofa, palm oil and cassava to produce ethanol and biodiesel. For a great in-depth story of what may be the beginning of a wonderful adventure, see article in El Universal.
