Senator JoAnne L. Buth and W. Scott Thurlow, President of the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association to Address Economic Club

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 8, 2014) - The bioeconomy offers a unique opportunity to foster economic growth and job creation, advance innovation, and help Canada move towards a more prosperous and sustainable energy future. Renewable fuels, be it ethanol, biodiesel or advanced biofuels, extend our oil supply, diversify our fuel mix and offer superior environmental performance. These biofuels also create new markets for Canadian agricultural products. Through the 2007 federal Renewable Fuels Strategy and capital investment, Canada has built a strong foundation for renewable fuel products and technology. Now is the time to leverage this success and take it to the next level. "Evolution and Growth" is the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association's vision and action plan to ensure that Canada capitalizes on the full potential of its natural biomass and delivers more of the sustainable fuels and products that Canadian consumers want and need.
