Canadian Renewable Fuel Pioneers Honoured

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 1, 2010) - The Canadian Renewable Fuels Association is pleased to announce the 2010 Green Fuels Award Recipients. The awards honour pioneers in the development and commercialization of low carbon renewable fuels such as ethanol and biodiesel in Canada. The awards were presented at the 7th Annual Canadian Renewable Fuels Summit in Ottawa-Gatineau. Awards announced today were:

The Fuel Change Award 2010 - Husky Energy Inc.

For Achievement in Promoting the Use of Renewable Fuels in Canada

Husky is Western Canada's largest producer of ethanol and was a pioneer in marketing of ethanol-blended fuels. The company's first ethanol plant was built in 1981 to produce ethanol for fuel and industrial use. Husky and Mohawk retail outlets market ethanol-blended gasoline under the "Mother Nature's Fuel" brand.

Husky opened a 130 million litre per year ethanol plant in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan in 2006, and a year later completed a 130 million litre per year ethanol plant in Minnedosa, Manitoba.

The Green Fuels Industry Award 2010 – Ken Field, Chairman, GreenField Ethanol Inc.

For Outstanding Dedication to the Advancement of Renewable Fuels in Canada

Mr. Field is one of Canada's original renewable fuel pioneers. He is being honoured for his vision and tireless dedication in building the renewable fuels industry in Canada. In 1989 he founded GreenField Ethanol (formerly Commercial Alcohols) and under his leadership, the company has grown to become the largest manufacturer and distributor of fuel ethanol, industrial alcohol and alcohol-related products in Canada.
