    Ecuadorean scientist Xavier Carvajal works on a biofuel project in the Neotropical Centre for Biomass Research at the Pontifical Catholic University of Ecuador in Quito November 30, 2009. Carvajal runs a research project focused on finding new sources for the production of ethanol fuel. New yeast species which are endemic to Ecuador, have been found and Carvajal believes some may be potentially useful for the fermentation of a wide range of sugars that can then be used to produce ethanol.
