Hawaiian Electric Company and Pacific Biodiesel Technologies agree biodiesel supply deal for three power plants In Hawaii, Hawaiian Electric Company and Pacific Biodiesel Technologies have reached a new agreement for the Maui-based biofuel company to supply biodiesel processed from recycled waste cooking oil and other local feedstocks for the 50-megawatt Schofield Generating Station, eight-megawatt Honolulu International Airport Emergency Power Facility, and other Oahu generation facilities as needed. The three-year renewable contract for 2 million to 4 million gallons per year will go into effect in 2018, subject to approval by the state Public Utilities Commission. Biodiesel processed at Pacific Biodiesel’s refinery on Hawaii Island will be barged to Oahu in secure, stainless-steel containers and trucked to sites where it will be used.
