Renewable Diesel Rundown: The differences and implications for Canadian Ag

Members-Only Webinar with Robert Day: June 9 @ 3 PM EST

We are very excited to announce the topic of our first members-only webinar: Renewable Diesel Rundown: The Differences and Implications for Canadian Ag with guest Robert Day, the CEO of Ceres Global Ag.

Based on both the Canadian and U.S. governments looking for opportunities to further develop their biofuel industries, the canola and soybean industries are very excited about the potential demand for renewable diesel. Mr. Day will provide the background on the differences to biodiesel, potential market demand growth, resulting shifts in domestic oilseed crush capacity, and possible trade flow alterations.

As one of the companies intending to build a canola crush plant in Canada based on the potential of renewable diesel, Mr. Day has some skin in the game and will provide an insider’s perspective on why his company and others are so bullish on this relatively new biofuel.
