On September 4, the CBA issued a joint press release with other industry organizations calling for a national ‘Clean Fuel Strategy’ to leverage innovation and sustainable resources to secure investment in the production and use of clean fuels. Collectively, the associations represent technologies that can, with the right policy measures in place, exceed the proposed federal Clean Fuel Standard’s objective of 30 Mt of annual GHG emission reductions by 2030. Estimates of potential emission reductions are based on modelling work for the joint industry–federal government steering committee looking at the competitiveness of clean fuel investment in Canada.
The CBA has developed a draft Canadian Anaerobic Digestion (AD) Guideline that aims to create a clear outline of best practices for AD facilities processing food and organic waste materials, including agricultural feedstocks. The CBA gathered feedback from government ministries and agencies in British Columbia, Ontario and Alberta, from industry organizations, and CBA members representing agricultural, municipal and private interests. The input has been tremendously positive and supportive and we wish to thank all who dedicated time to review the document and provide detailed comments. The CBA’s AD Guideline Committee is reviewing all feedback for consideration and aiming to finalize the document this fall. A copy will be posted to the CBA’s website.
