June 17, 2023 [Saanich News]- Premier David Eby said the opening of Canada’s first renewable diesel and hydrogen complex in Prince George will allow northern British Columbia escape previous boom-and-bust cycles and help B.C. compete for companies that look to decarbonize operations.
Eby made these comments Friday (June 16) in Prince George, where he was touring the $380-million facility, which Tidewater Renewable will soon operate following three years of planning and construction. Plans call for the eventual annual production of 170 million litres of diesel, whose CO2 emissions will be 80 to 90 per cent lower than traditional diesel by blending traditional fuel with bio-feedstock like canola, tallow and tall oil.
The facility, which will create 30 permanent jobs, will also be able to produce renewable hydrogen usable for the production of low carbon fuel and other potential uses.
