Ontario announces new biofuel blending mandates for 2020

November 30, 2017 |

In Canada, the government of Ontario announced new initiatives to strengthen the biofuels sector in the province, improve the environmental performance of fuels, and encourage the production of emerging advanced biofuels.

Proposed changes to biofuels regulations include increasing the current 5% ethanol mandate to 10% starting in 2020, requiring ethanol sold for compliance to be 35% lower in greenhouse gases than gasoline, and enabling a wider range of advanced biofuels to meet both the Ethanol in Gasoline and the Greener Diesel regulations. The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change also announced an expanded scope for the previously proposed biofuel blender support program to enable infrastructure upgrades and expanded availability of lower carbon intensity fuels in transportation.
