Obama Administration Pushes Accelerator For Renewable Fuels

OTTAWA: The inauguration of Barack Obama as the new President of the United States yesterday has combined with Canadian efforts to spark a North American explosion in the growth of renewable fuels, says Gordon Quaiattini, President of the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association (CRFA).

“When President-elect Obama took the oath of office, a new North American consensus in favour of cleaner and greener renewable fuels was confirmed,” says Quaiattini. “The Obama administration is set to super-charge the North American renewable fuels sector with an unprecedented investment in cleaner and greener energy sources, including ethanol and biodiesel. Combined with existing Congressional plans and the efforts of federal and provincial governments here in Canada, our sector is to experience explosive growth.”
