Why renewable diesel?
Dillon: There are a few drivers in Canada. On the regulatory side, the Clean Fuel Regulation Standard that recently came into effect is the biggest. This regulation mandates that the carbon intensity of gasoline and diesel fuels used in Canada must be reduced year over year. The only way to meet that demand is to blend more renewable content into those fuels today.
The other is that Cummins has also recently approved their entire line of diesel high horsepower engines across all ratings for use with up to 100% renewable Diesel. Utilizing renewable diesel reduces net greenhouse gas (GHG) emission by up to 90% compared to conventional diesel, depending on the feedstock and fuel pathway. Introducing these engines will give customers who want to run renewable diesel the confidence to know that they can reduce their GHG emissions without any risks to the equipment.
