In Quebec, QFI Biodiesel has changed its name to Evoleum, “reflecting the evolution of oil,” as the company states. The company has also launched what it touts as “a more attractive and functional website, evoleum.ca, with a new green logo that clearly reflects its essence, focused on innovation and sustainable development.”
Evoleum helps large Quebec companies now reliant on polluting fuels (diesel or bunker oil) reduce their environmental footprint by supplying them with biofuel made from recycled waste, such as used restaurant oil. Converted into biodiesel or biobunker, this product is more than 95 percent biodegradable and emits no greenhouse gases, thus making it the ecological choice and enhancing these companies’ environmental image.
“An interesting benefit is that switching to biofuel will earn companies credits in the carbon market. In Montreal in July 2015, this represented an immediate discount of 4.8 cents a litre on biodiesel,” explains the new CEO, Dominic Voyer.
