Alberta Builds On The Promise Of Renewable Fuels

Ottawa – The Canadian Renewable Fuels Association today applauded the Government of Alberta’s decision to extend its support for renewable fuels such as ethanol and biodiesel by extending its BioEnergy Producer Credit Program by 5 years to 2016.

The extended program presents opportunities to build additional ethanol and biodiesel capacity in Alberta with a focus on the great potential for second generation renewable fuels which use feedstocks like forestry, agricultural and municipal waste.

“With this announcement Alberta is making a serious bid to become a leader in renewable energy development in Canada,” said Gordon Quaiattini, President of the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association.
