Addressing climate change and reducing GHG emissions from the transportation sector are top policy priorities for governments around the world. Biofuels are a proven and viable solution to decarbonize transportation fuels. As policies in North America evolve to incentivize and support the increased use of biofuels, opportunities for low carbon agricultural feedstock are expected to grow. The presentation will outline the policy landscape in North America and how this translates into environmental and economic opportunities for the canola value chain.
