Renewable Industries Canada hits back at Ecofiscal Commission study

October 5, 2016 |

In Canada, Renewable Industries Canada says the Ecofiscal Commission released a skewed, flawed and unacceptable report Oct. 4 calling on policymakers to rethink biofuels policies.

The report, Course Correction—It’s Time to Rethink Canadian Biofuels Policies uses information that ignores independent biofuels cost benefit analyses and omits current government data and reports as the basis of its recommendations, including the ill-advised suggestion to phase out renewable fuel mandates.

“Ecofiscal’s recommendation to phase out renewable fuel mandates shows how little appreciation it has for how the fuel market functions, what it takes to successfully lower greenhouse gas emissions from our transportation sector and meet Canada’s climate change objectives,” said RICanada President Andrea Kent.
