Latest EPA studies have determined ethanol is far from being an environmentally friendly fuel, so I'm not sure what "needed quantities" would accomplish.
Do you have a link to those EPA studies?

I was driving back from Townville a few days ago and I passed the sugar mill, here is the pic. Cars in Cairns a few days later near a mill down there were covered in ash from the mill.
