Low CO2 Canadian-made Cellulosic Ethanol Fuels Premiers Conference In Regina

OTTAWA – Canadian-made cellulosic ethanol will fuel the official vehicle fleet at the 2009 meeting of the Council of the Federation in Regina, August 5 to 7.

A blend of low CO2 cellulosic ethanol, produced from wheat straw at Iogen Corporation’s cellulosic ethanol demonstration plant in Ottawa, will fuel a total of 40 flexible fuel Dodge Caravans at the conference.

“Canada’s Premiers have played a leadership role in creating home-grown renewable fuels. This demonstration of advanced low CO2 cellulosic ethanol is proof that their leadership is beginning to pay dividends,” said Gordon Quaiattini, President of the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association.
