Canadian clean fuel standard could reduce GHG by 50 million tons per year by 2030

September 9, 2019 |

In Canada, Canada’s national clean fuels associations forecast greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions of over 50 million metric tons per year by 2030 through greater production and use of renewable energy in Canada. The associations, Advanced Biofuels Canada (ABFC), Canadian Biogas Association (CBA), Canadian Gas Association (CGA), Electric Mobility Canada (EMC) and Wood Pellet Association of Canada (WPAC), represent a significant part of the spectrum of Canada’s primary clean fuel industries. Together, they share a belief that investments to increase the production and use of clean and renewable fuels and electric vehicles (EVs) to meet Canada’s GHG emissions targets will stimulate clean growth, create jobs, and achieve significant greenhouse gas reductions over the next decade.

Collectively, the associations represent technologies that can, with the right policy measures in place, exceed the proposed federal Clean Fuel Standard’s objective of 30 Mt of annual GHG emission reductions by 2030. Estimates of potential emission reductions are based on modelling work for the joint industry –federal government steering committee looking at the competitivity of clean fuel investment in Canada.
