Are Canadian Biofuels set for Growth?

This week our guest is Doug Hooper, Director of Policy and Regulations at Advanced Biofuels Canada. Advanced Biofuels Canada is a national industry association established to promote the production and use of advanced biofuels In Canada.

Here are some of the questions that Peter and Jackie asked Doug: Why is there a push to increase the use of biofuels in Canada? What feedstocks and processes are used to produce biofuels? How do biofuels compare with petroleum on the basis of greenhouse gas emissions and cost? Does Canada import biofuels today? Is there opportunity to increase domestic production?  How much could Canada’s emerging Clean Fuel Standard policy increase the demand for biofuels?
