Global biofuel leaders add weight to Advanced Biofuels Canada’s national voice

Advanced Biofuels Canada (ABFC) announces a significant expansion of its membership. Clean fuel policies open window for industry growth.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, May 11, 2017 / -- Advanced Biofuels Canada (ABFC) announces a significant expansion of its membership.

“Our new members bring a wealth of next generation biofuels technologies and knowledge to our association. Deploying both commercially proven and demonstrated technologies in Canada will change the paradigm of what advanced biofuels can accomplish in a low carbon future,” observed ABFC board chair, Ron Cardwell. “Our organization’s outlook comes from producers who have pioneered the hard work to open up markets for advanced biofuels in Canada, married with the view of companies who are bringing game-changing technologies to market. Both are needed to lower the carbon emissions from transport fuels in Canada.”

The new members span technology developers to fuel marketers:

Cellufuel Inc. is currently operating a demonstration-scale facility producing clean synthetic diesel from low-value forestry residues.

Ensyn Corporation has a 30-year history of innovation and commercial deployment of fast thermal cracking of carbon-based feedstocks, including woody biomass, producing renewable chemicals, and ‘biocrude’ for thermal applications or co-processing with refinery feedstocks for the production of transportation fuels.

Iogen is a leader in developing and implementing technology to make second generation biofuels, converting the non-food portion of plants into renewable transportation fuels with low greenhouse gas emissions.

LanzaTech has a globally deployed gas fermentation technology which converts carbon-rich wastes and residues from industrial processes into valuable chemical products and fuels, including sustainable aviation fuel.

OPIS (Oil Price Information Service) is one of the world’s most comprehensive sources for market information, news and intelligence for conventional fuels and biofuels.

Steeper Energy is demonstrating a hydrothermal liquefaction technology that produces a synthetic ‘biocrude’ oil for on-site upgrading or refinery co-processing, to produce low-sulphur diesel, jet and marine biofuel from a wide range of biomass.

Targray is a leading North American provider of biodiesel solutions with a dedicated rail fleet linking its supply terminals to a wide range of fleets and fuel retailers in the US and Canada.

The federal government commenced its Clean Fuel Standard consultation in January 2017; the regulation will make Canada the first country to implement a national clean fuel standard. Ian Thomson, ABFC president, stated, “The proposed Clean Fuel Standard is already drawing the attention of companies with the clean fuel technologies needed to lower transportation fuel emissions. If designed and implemented properly, the Clean Fuel Standard, coupled with complementary policies such as carbon pricing and cleantech investment programs, will create competitive conditions to host new production projects here in Canada.”

Advanced Biofuels Canada/ Biocarburants avancés Canada promotes the production and use of low carbon advanced biofuels in Canada, which our members supply across North America and globally. Our members have invested in biofuels processing and supply chain operations across Canada, and are actively bringing to market the next generation of low carbon biofuels. For information on Advanced Biofuels Canada and our members, please visit:

Advanced biofuels reduce carbon emissions at least 50% below the fossil fuels they displace, and are made from renewable biomass. Canada has approximately 750 million litres of advanced biofuel production capacity, and fuels produced in Canada are used across North America and Europe.
