Saskatchewan-based renewable fuel innovator, Covenant Energy, says its soon-to-be-constructed processing plant will be producing sustainable aviation fuel, renewable diesel and Arctic-grade renewable diesel.

Production at the southern Saskatchewan facility is expected to begin in the second half of 2023. It is expected to realize greenhouse gas emission reductions of 80 to 85 per cent compared with fossil fuel diesel. Recycled hydrogen is to be used in the production process.

The facility will also create a demand for 35 million bushels of canola seed to produce upwards of 350,000 tonnes of canola oil feedstock each year.
