RICanada welcomes final Clean Fuel Regulations

June 30, 2022 |

In Canada, Renewable Industries Canada (RICanada) welcomed the Canadian government’s release of the final Clean Fuel Regulations (CFR). The final CFR marks a major milestone in Canada’s ongoing efforts to decarbonize transportation and combat climate change sustainably.

RICanada has been pleased to be an active participant in the Government’s CFR Technical Working Group and public consultations since the policy was announced. Reflected in the final regulations were recommendations to simplify administrative burdens for biofuel feedstocks and the retirement of credits on exported fossil fuels. These important criteria will ensure the CFR reflects the sustainability of Canadian agriculture and aligns with other jurisdictions.

Biofuels are an essential solution to climate change and smart climate policies that support innovation will pave the road to net zero biofuels. The CFR will be instrumental in sending a clear signal to investors that Canada is ready for more clean and more cost-effective low-carbon fuels, like ethanol and biomass-based diesel.
