Hawaii Petroleum loads first tanker of distilled biodiesel

By Pacific Biodiesel Technologies | December 27, 2012

Hawaii Petroleum loaded the first tanker of fuel produced at the Big Island Biodiesel facility in Kea ’au. The fuel is bound for its nearby Hawaii Fueling Network station in Shipman Business Park, which offers 100 percent biodiesel and a 20 percent blend.

HFN has been selling biodiesel produced at Pacific Biodiesel’s facilities on Maui and Oahu at its recently opened station. With Big Island Biodiesel up and running, all of

Pacific Biodiesel’s fuel will now be produced at the new facility, which has the ability to process the most degraded recycled vegetable oil feedstock into the highest quality biodiesel available in the country. The plant incorporates the newest technology that removes virtually all trace impurities and results in biodiesel that is clear instead of amber.

Hawaii Petroleum recognizes that meeting the energy challenges of today and tomorrow requires both traditional hydrocarbons and a growing range of alternative fuels that deliver cleaner energy. Mark Leong, Vice President and General Manager, was at the plant for the first fueling. “We are proud to be the first to offer biodiesel on the Big Island through our HFN network and bulk deliveries,” Leong stated. “Pacific Biodiesel is excited to provide the nation’s best quality biodiesel for our customers,” said Jenna Long, fuel sales manager at Pacific Biodiesel. “We’re thrilled that Hawaii Petroleum is making this renewable, sustainable fuel available across the island.

Hawaii Petroleum offers dependable bulk fuel and lubricant delivery services to all districts of the island. In addition, its HFN network has five commercial card lock sites in

Hilo and Kona, as well as six HFN retail locations around the island that provide a convenient network of fueling sites. Its sister company, Maui Petroleum, offers similar services with nine HFN fueling locations on the Valley Isle. Hawaii Petroleum is committed to offering clean, affordable biofuels in Hawaii.

    Good points Jamie! No pun idtnneed, but we've got a long road ahead of us. I've always locked the bike up for winter, but this year, I'm going to start using it for quick trips around the neighborhood, rather than using the car. And despite the extra 20 minutes it takes to get to work on the bus, I'll be experimenting in January with taking it when my [work] schedule permits. My estimates are that I'll be able to bus to work 1/3 - 1/2 of the time. I'll get my reading time in, so it'll be more productive than driving. But you're right. Big media isn't going to report on the real issue. Alienating viewers, despite the fact that they're using the airwaves as a public service (for personal profit, nonetheless) may cause social discord. Better to be lull the masses, right?
