Grain Farmers of Ontario concerned about land use restrictions under Clean Fuels Standard

September 23, 2020 |

In Canada, Grain Farmers of Ontario has deep concerns about the current Clean Fuels Standard (CFS) proposed by the Canadian government and is opposed to the criteria for land use, asking for transparency around carbon numbers and any certification processes.

The CFS currently contains restrictions on land use, which will discourage farmers from planting and growing biofuel crops. The restrictions do not take into account the sustainability efforts that farmers already take, or the competitive advantage that will now benefit other countries selling corn and soybeans into Canada for biofuels.
