BiofuelRepresentatives from the oil industry are asking state officials to further delay rules for blending ethanol with gasoline sold in Hawaii. Ethanol is a form of alcohol made from sugarcane wastes. When blended with gasoline, ethanol produces a cleaner-burning fuel. “If we have 10 percent ethanol in our fuel, we have 10 percent of a very clean renewable fuel that we are producing here in Hawaii. It’s creating jobs in Hawaii. It’s preserving jobs in Hawaii, in our sugar sector,” said William Maloney of Maui Ethanol LLC.
