Green and Sustainable Manufacturing Jobs for Ontario

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 21, 2009) - The Canadian Renewable Fuels Association (CRFA) applauded the Government of Canada's important investment in renewable fuels with their announcement at BIOX Corporation in Hamilton today.

"BIOX is using a new advanced technology at their facility in Hamilton to make a world-class renewable fuel," said CRFA President Gordon Quaiattini. "Biodiesel significantly reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, as well as reducing many other harmful air pollutants. This is on top of bringing about diversity at the fuel pump for all drivers and consumers."

Biodiesel is a clean-burning renewable fuel, which can be used in diesel engines without modification. It is most commonly sold as a blend in diesel fuel. Biodiesel is made from renewable feedstocks, such as vegetable oils (including recycled oil) and tallow.

"Being the largest producer in Canada, BIOX is proving that biodiesel is being made here today, it is viable, and it is becoming more accessible for all drivers and fleets in Canada," said Quaiattini.

Founded in 1984, the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association (CRFA) is a non-profit organization with a mission to promote the use of renewable fuels for transportation through consumer awareness and government liaison activities.
