Renewable Fuels Regulations

These regulations require fuel producers and importers to have an average renewable content of at least 5% based on the volume of gasoline that they produce or import into Canada. The regulations include provisions that govern the creation of compliance units, allow trading of these units among participants and also require recordkeeping and reporting to ensure compliance. These regulations also require fuel producers and importers of diesel fuel and heating distillate oil (heating distillate oil volumes for space heating) to have an average annual renewable fuel content equal to at least 2% of the volume of diesel fuel and heating distillate oil that they produce and import into Canada.
