Ontario hiking ethanol content in gasoline to help fight climate change

first_img See More Videos Ontario would be the first province to raise the fuel-additive ratio to the level it plans, which Queen’s Park says would be the equivalent of taking 300,000 cars off the road every year in the fight against greenhouse gas emissions. “We know about one-third of all greenhouse gas emissions in the province come from transportation, which is why increasing the amount of renewable content in gasoline is such an important step towards fighting climate change and driving down emissions,” said Environment Minister Jeff Yurek, MPP for Elgin-Middlesex-London. Yurek said the changes will also have a significant impact for corn producers across Ontario. “This change will also help attract investment in ethanol production, create jobs in rural communities and assist the bio-fuel and agriculture sectors in their long-term economic recovery from COVID-19,” he said.

Ontario plans to raise by half the ethanol content required in gasoline in a move to fight climate change that could also benefit Southwestern Ontario’s vast corn belt. The province says it will gradually increase the required ethanol content in gasoline to 15 per cent from 10 per cent by 2030. Made from corn, most of which in Ontario is grown in Southwestern Ontario, ethanol is also produced in the region, home to major refiners in Sarnia, Chatham, and Aylmer. The higher required increments of ethanol in gasoline will be made gradual, the province said, going from 10 per cent to 11 per cent by 2025, to 13 per cent by 2028 and 15 per cent in 2030. The planned changes are part of Ontario’s plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30 per cent by 2030. Andrea Kent, vice-president of industry and government affairs for Greenfield Global Inc. that has an ethanol plant in Chatham, welcomed the news. advertisement Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2 The Chatham Greenfield Global plant on Bloomfield Road in Chatham, Ont.
