From Biofuels Digest, by Meghan Sapp
In Canada, a new, national survey, more than three quarters (88%) of Canadians believe more renewable fuels should be produced in Canada and that government should do more to promote the industry. The poll of 1,750 Canadians aged 18 and over showed that 85% of respondents feel pride in Canada’s biofuels industry.
The survey also showed that at least one in three Canadians would like there to be more support for renewable fuels. When respondents learned of the current federal biofuels mandates, 31% said their impression of government action on climate change improved. Two in three Canadians (67%) also support increasing the level of biodiesel from the current mandate of 2% to 5%.
