Ethanol groups comment on Canadian fuel standards plan

Three U.S. pro-ethanol groups say they are in favor of Canada’s Clean Fuel Standards proposals.  Growth Energy, the Renewable Fuels Association, and the U.S. Grains Council issued a joint statement to Canadian officials, calling their goal to reduce liquid fuel carbon by 11% and reducing greenhouse gases by 23-megatons is both “laudable and achievable.”

The groups say they support Canada’s proposal to raise the minimum blending requirement from 5% to 10%, and Ontario’s proposal to require 15% or E15 by 2025. 

The three groups also urge Canadian officials to be more specific and transparent about improvements to fossil fuels, and not to apply compliance flexibilities too broadly, so low-carbon biofuel use is not stifled.
