“Renewable fuels” encapsulate a range of products, from ethanol and biodiesel, to next-generation bio-based fuels. Renewable fuels can be blended into traditional petroleum-based fuels. Their most common use is in internal combustion engines that burn gasoline or diesel, at low blend levels (e.g., up to 10% for ethanol and 5% for biodiesel).
The use of renewable fuels can significantly reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. It can also assist Canadian farmers and rural communities and help secure Canada's place in the growing bio-economy.
