The Canadian Renewable Fuels Association (CRFA) is hosting its 7th Annual Summit in Canada’s National Capital Region – Ottawa / Gatineau from November 29 – December 1, 2010 at the Hilton Lac Leamy Hotel. This year’s theme is Growing Beyond Oil: Delivering Canada’s Energy Future and will once again be the premier Canadian conference for the ethanol and biodiesel industries. The Summit attracts participants from across North America and is open to members and non-members alike. It attracts an audience of roughly 450 participants, drawing from all corners of the ethanol and biodiesel industries, including grain and cellulose ethanol producers, biodiesel producers, Canada’s leading petroleum companies and agriculture associations.
Canada is now a frontrunner in the worldwide effort to create clean, renewable sources of transportation fuel. The benefits of this approach are many. From an economic standpoint, our industry generates $2 billion in economic activity each and every year and has created more than 14,000 jobs in total – most of those in rural Canada. At the same time, renewable fuels production will help to reduce GHG emissions by over 4.2 mega-tonnes. This is the equivalent of taking over 1 million cars off the road each and every year.
