Saskatchewan Launches Biodiesel Taskforce

19 June 2005

The government of the Canadian province of Saskatchewan and industry representatives have launched a new task force to lead the development of the province’s biodiesel industry.

The Biodiesel Development Task Force will determine the current status of the biodiesel industry and its potential for the province; identify challenges and opportunities; consult and communicate with key stakeholders; and make recommendations to further the industry.

The Task Force is headed by Saskatchewan Canola Growers Association (SCGA) President Darin Egert and SCGA Executive Director Judie Dyck.

It is important that producers play a major role in moving a biodiesel industry forward in this province. We use about one-third of the diesel fuel in Saskatchewan so we have the most to gain, since we are both feedstock suppliers for the production of biodiesel as well as users. We want biodiesel plants in our backyards, along with the jobs.
