The Ontario Federation of Agriculture welcomes this opportunity to provide its perspective on a provincial mandate for greener diesel fuels.
Agriculture plays a significant role in delivering on the Ontario government’s commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality. As outlined in the EBR posting: “Greener diesel is a safe, non-toxic, clean-burning, biodegradable and renewable fuel. It can be produced from a number of underutilized products, such as recycled cooking oils and animal fat, as well as from canola or soybeans.”
The OFA is confident that Ontario agriculture is well positioned to contribute to meeting the mandated greener diesel as outlined in the EBR posting.
