Ottawa, ON: The Canadian Renewable Fuels Association today applauded the decision by the Government of Manitoba to mandate the blending of 2% biodiesel in the provincial diesel supply by November 1, 2009.

“Today is a good day for homegrown biofuels in Manitoba and Canada,” said Gordon Quaiattini, President of the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association. “With today’s decision, Manitoba will become the first province in Canada to realize the many benefits of blending biodiesel in its fuel supply.
