In Canada, Advanced Biofuels Canada (ABFC) released the Biofuels in Canada 2021 (BIC) report, with full open-source access to Canadian market data for renewable, low-carbon, and conventional fuels.
This report is fifth in a series commissioned annually by Advanced Biofuels Canada and independently authored by Navius Research, a leading energy and environment quantitative market analysis firm. It provides an evaluation of Canadian renewable and low carbon fuel policies and their impact on fuel consumption, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction, and consumer costs.
The annual report calculates the volumes of renewable and petroleum transportation fuels consumed in each Canadian province, and characterizes these calculations by fuel type, feedstock, and carbon intensity. Clean fuels profiled include ethanol, biodiesel, and hydrogenation-derived renewable diesel (HDRD); bio-based feedstocks co-processed with crude oil in a conventional refinery are also analyzed.
New analyses in the 2021 edition also include: estimated results for 2020; an update on the impact of light-duty electric vehicles on fuel consumption and GHG emissions; and the estimated contribution of co-processed fuels on fuel consumption and GHG emissions.
