Changes to US Renewable Fuel Standard to help Canadian canola growers

Canola’s role in helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions took another step forward last week.

Certain fuels made with canola and rapeseed oil now qualify as advanced biofuels in the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized a rule last week.

Canadian Oilseed Processors Association Executive Director Chris Vervaet said the potential for the canola industry is enormous.

“It’s a very important milestone,” he said. “We’ve been working off and on with the regulators in the United States and with our partners in the United States to get access to the US renewable diesel market for many years so to finally have a pathway for canola in that market is, again a really important milestone and provides a lot of potential opportunity for canola going forward.”
