Interest in expanded production and use of non-fossil clean fuels in Canada increases with the release of the Clean Fuels Regulation.

Advanced Biofuels Canada (ABFC) welcomes seven new companies to the national industry association’s membership. The new members, which include marketers, producers, distributors, and technology/service providers, will contribute to the association’s work to increase the use of renewable fuels in Canada.

“The addition of new members grows ABFC’s ability to expand demand for low carbon fuels, and to secure competitive production support programs to build new domestic capacity,” said Ian Thomson, president of Advanced Biofuels Canada.

“It is evident that with the recent publication of the final Clean Fuel Regulations that fuel suppliers, including Canada’s refiners, are moving rapidly to incorporate low-carbon renewable content in their products. We anticipate that new entrants, along with new low carbon fuel production capacity, will increase competition and ensure that Canadians have affordable fuel options.

Advanced Biofuels Canada has established a set of ‘caucuses’ to focus on policy issues and opportunities in emergent sectors, such as sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), advanced marine fuels, and refining (coprocessing and/or co-refining renewable hydrocarbon fuels at petroleum refineries). “These sub-sectors are experiencing rapid expansion,” observed Thomson, “we’re working to support our members’ investments in fuel production capacity and distribution.”
