What We Do

Renewable Industries Canada, founded in 1984 as the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association, has grown to represent the leaders of Canada’s bioeconomy – producers of renewable fuels and value added products that reduce GHG emissions and provide economic opportunity to the benefit of all Canadians.

Members of Renewable Industries Canada provide the public with renewable, clean-burning biofuels such as ethanol and Biodiesel – fuels that help fight climate change and combat pollution and smog.  At the same time, they produce value added products from renewable resources and continuously innovate to provide even greater environmental and economic benefits.


To promote the use of value-added products made from renewable resources through consumer awareness and government liaison activities.


A diversified fuel mix and bio-based products are essential to Canada’s energy future and to ensuring long-term economic prosperity.


To seize the environmental and economic opportunity of Canada’s renewable fuels and bio-based product industries for the benefit of all Canadians – today and well into the future.

Our Action Plan

With our abundance of natural biomass, Canada is well positioned to be a world leader in the production and development of renewable fuels and bio-based products. Renewable fuels are now an established and integral part of our energy market, but this is only the beginning of what a resource and talent rich country like Canada is capable of.

Renewable Industries Canada members built a capable platform for the production of biofuels and related technologies. Together, we are helping build Canada’s bioeconomy.

A cleaner, more prosperous energy future for Canada is within reach, with Canada to become a global leader in renewable fuels and bio-based products.
