Renewable Industries Canada (RICanada) is the only national voice for Canada’s renewable fuels and bio-based product sectors. Founded in 1984 as the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association, RICanada has grown to represent the leaders of Canada’s bioeconomy – producers of renewable fuels, such as ethanol and biodiesel, and bio-based products that reduce GHG emissions, combat pollution and smog, and provide economic opportunity to the benefit of all Canadians.
Renewable fuels and bio-based products epitomize clean technology. Canadian producers continuously innovate to use resources more responsibly, reduce negative environmental impact and provide economic opportunity. RICanada promotes the use of renewable fuels and bio-based products through consumer awareness and government liaison activities, with a vision of a sustainable energy future.
