December 3, 2013, Montreal, Que. – More than 200 industry
leaders and professionals from across Canada are in Montreal for the 10th
Annual Canadian Renewable Fuels Summit (CRFS), taking place from December 2-4,
Since 1984, the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association (CRFA)
has been the leading national voice for clean-burning, renewable fuels in
Canada. This year marks the 10th anniversary of its annual policy conference
for the ethanol and biodiesel industry.
The theme of the 10th anniversary summit, currently underway
in Montreal, is Fuelling Growth and
Innovation. The summit outlines the association’s roadmap for building
Canada’s emerging bioeconomy and becoming a global leader in clean energy.
“The challenge of capitalizing on our natural resources
while protecting our environment is one of the greatest concerns facing our
country. It is also an unparalleled opportunity,” said CRFA President W. Scott
Thurlow. “Biofuels present the best way to seize this opportunity. Renewable
transportation fuels and co-products are the key to helping power our vehicles,
diversifying and extending our fuel pools, and protecting our planet for
generations to come.”
