OTTAWA: After nine successful years – the last four at the helm of the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association (CRFA), Mr. Gordon Quaiattini today announced he would be stepping down as President to pursue new public policy challenges. During his tenure, Mr. Quaiattini oversaw the introduction of Canada’s milestone renewable fuels mandates for both ethanol and biodiesel.
“It has been a pleasure and honour to serve the pioneers, entrepreneurs and innovators that make up the renewable fuels industry in Canada,” said Mr. Quaiattini in making the announcement. “Renewable ethanol and biodiesel are now part of Canada’s national energy supply. It is an ideal time for me to seek out new opportunities and challenges. I want to thank the Board of Directors and the members of the CRFA for their effort and leadership. Thanks to their tireless dedication, renewable fuels in Canada are now a reality. That is good news for the price at the pump, good news for the environment and good news for emerging advanced biofuels technologies.”
