Renewables in Canada’s transport fuel mix have grown significantly in the last decade, on the shoulders of EU and US leadership.

Their position as a small but growing component of the fuel supply has brought with it the benefits of emission reductions and increased competition at the pump for consumers.

The growth has not been without challenge, however, both from the traditional fossil fuel sector and from critiques on the sustainability biofuels, either some or all. The technologies and feedstocks currently in commercial development are poised to drive the next phase in growth of second-generation biofuel use. This webinar will review the current status of renewable fuels for transport and address opportunities and challenges to their growth to 2020.

Fred Ghatala is a partner of Waterfall Group, a Vancouver-based consultancy on advanced biofuels and bioenergy.

From 2005 - 2011 he was with Canadian Bioenergy Corporation, which operated a nation-wide biofuel import and distribution business and developed first and second generation bioenergy projects, including a co-venture to construct Canada’s largest biodiesel facility (70 MGY) in Alberta which commissioned in 2013.

Fred is currently head of the Canadian delegation to ISO 13065 ‘Sustainability Criteria for Bioenergy’, an international standard being developed for publication in 2015, and is the director for Carbon and Sustainability for the Western Canada Biodiesel Association.
