As Of July 1 Canada Drives With Renewable Biodiesel

OTTAWA: The Canadian Renewable Fuels Association (CRFA) today lauded the final release of the national 2% biodiesel mandate in Canada as good news for consumers, farmers and energy diversity in Canada.

“This will be a special Canada Day for the renewable fuels industry in Canada,” said Gordon Quaiattini, CRFA president in reacting to the federal government’s announcement of a July 1 start date for biodiesel blends in Canada. “Homegrown biodiesel is a cleaner alternative to conventional diesel. It will help moderate price by adding to our fuel supply, create new jobs, and benefit farmers and drivers alike.”
