About the National Renewable Diesel Demonstration Initiative:

The National Renewable Diesel Demonstration Initiative (NRDDI) supports projects that demonstrate how renewable diesel fuel will perform under Canadian conditions. This research is being supported in advance of the proposed renewable fuels regulation that will require an average annual 2% renewable content in diesel fuel and heating oil by 2011 or earlier, subject to technical feasibility. This is a part of the Government of Canada's Renewable Fuels Strategy.
