Following denunciations of the use of food for fuel by former Cuban leader Fidel Castro, Galvez said on Wednesday the Caribbean island is modernizing its sugar industry but that plans to increase ethanol production have been scaled back.

    A process operator shows a handful of corn at the GreenField Ethanol plant in Chatham, Ontario, in this April 10, 2008 file photo. In the search for renewable energy, turning low-value materials like switchgrass and corn husks into ethanol to fuel cars is something of a Holy Grail. But scientists on the front lines of this search are finding that making the process commercially and environmentally viable is proving much harder than some of the hype would suggest.

    Gustavo Bianchi, who has a doctorate in Chemistry, speaks during an interview with Reuters at the lab of the True Chemistry company in Monte Grande, on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, in this picture taken on September 14, 2006. Most people think of beet, corn and sugar cane as basic foodstuffs, but Argentine scientists keen to take biofuels a step further are using them to develop a greener alternative to petrochemicals. The pioneering project led by Bianchi, being developed by a small company on the fringes of Buenos Aires, aims to use ethanol as a replacement for traditional fossil fuels to make products for motorists ranging from brake fluid to engine coolant.

    US Senator Charles Schumer speaks about reducing the import tariff on gas additive ethanol, as a way to reduce gasoline prices, during a news conference in front of a gas station in New York, May 7, 2006. Schumer plans to introduce legislation on Monday in hopes of easing the prices consumers pay, by encouraging the importation of ethanol from outside the US, which will increase the domestic supply and hopefully reduce the overall price at the pump.
