Advanced Biofuels Canada pushing for biodiesel demand to replace Chinese canola exports

April 15, 2019 |

In Canada, Western Producer magazine reports that Advanced Biofuels Canada is calling for increased use of canola for biodiesel in an effort to reduce the negative impact resulting from China’s canola import ban. Achieving biodiesel mandates at the federal and provincial levels in 2017 would require 443,000 metric tons of seed but the Chinese used to buy nearly 10 times that volume before it fell to zero. ABC estimates that to achieve the proposed Low Carbon Fuel Standard could require 3.17 million tons of canola, going a long way to relieve the pressure from the lack of Chinese demand.
