Canadian airport Edmonton International and NextStep Renewable Energy have signed an MoU supporting biofuel.

The two entities aim to bring low carbon renewable fuels into the aviation and airport sectors and the pair further hopes to create jobs, diversify the economy and encourage economic growth.

“We look forward to working with NSRE as we take the Edmonton Metro Region and Alberta forward in developing biofuels, lowering carbon emissions and generating jobs,” commented Tom Ruth, President and CEO of Edmonton International airport. “This work will support our goal of carbon neutral growth by 2021 and help establish EIA as a global aviation leader and, most importantly, drive research into new biofuel technologies and processes.”

The companies are attempting to address the void in supply for low carbon fuels in Canada by building domestic and global relationships. They also plan to aid growth in the Albertan low carbon economy.
