In Canada, less than four months after opening its state-of-the-art renewable fuel facility in Welland, Ontario, Atlantic Biodiesel has celebrated the ‘first pour’ of its high quality biodiesel suitable for cold weather applications.
“Atlantic Biodiesel’s first pour represents the collaboration, commitment and hard work that drives Canada’s biofuels industry,” said Jim Grey, Chairman of the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association (CRFA). “The industry produces well over two billion liters of fuel a year; generates gross economic benefits of nearly four billion dollars; and has delivered more than 14,000 direct and indirect jobs in Canada since 2007. Atlantic Biodiesel’s work has come to fruition, and brought approximately 25 direct jobs and significant indirect business to the Welland area.”
Atlantic Biodiesel’s facility is one of the largest in North America and produces 170 million liters of renewable, clean-burning biodiesel and 15 million liters of high-grade glycerin per year.
