Growth Energy applauds Canada’s Clean Fuel Standard –

IARN — Earlier this month, Canada published its nationwide Clean Fuel Standard draft regulation. The regulation is an initiative to reduce the lifecycle carbon intensity of fuels and energy used in Canada and achieve more than 20 million tons of annual reductions in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. The Canadian Clean Fuel Standard regulatory scenario has modeled compliance to include an average of 15 percent ethanol in gasoline by 2030.

Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor says the standard continues to push the benefits of biofuels in North America, stating, “Canada continues to be a trailblazer in addressing climate change and cutting greenhouse gases through biofuels.” Earlier this month, Growth Energy and Advanced Biofuels Canada co-hosted two webinars for Canadian stakeholders outlining the benefits and potential of E15 as Canada looks to higher biofuel blends.

Canada is currently the United States’ number one foreign customer for U.S. producers and a strong partner in promoting biofuels as a means to reduce greenhouse gases.
