On December 13th, Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) released the Regulatory Framework on the Clean Fuel Standard. The clean fuel standard will establish lifecycle carbon intensity requirements separately for liquid, gaseous and solid fuels that are used in transportation, industry and buildings.

The Regulatory Framework outlines the key elements of the design of the Clean Fuel Standard regulation, including its scope, regulated parties, carbon intensity approach, timing and potential compliance options such as credit trading. The CBA welcomes your comments by January 8th. Written comments to the ECCC on the regulatory framework may be provided by January 19, 2018.
