OFA supports the proposed regulatory amendments to increase renewable fuels content under the Environment Protection Act, recognizing that increasing renewable content in regular grade gasoline from 10% to 15% would result in significant tonnes of GHG emission reductions. OFA also supports the proposal that a bio-based fuel content target of 45% fewer lifecycle GHG emissions than conventional gasoline will help drive technologies to reduce emissions. OFA supports the use of addition energy crops for ethanol production and OFA supports enabling research into making lignocellulosic ethanol production a viable option. OFA recommends the government recognize and consider potential impact on agricultural land uses due to increased ethanol production demand. OFA recommends having available some grades of fuel without higher ethanol blends for use in small engines, older vehicles and off-road vehicles. OFA further recommends Ontario continue to support plans to develop more green fuels.
