# Fuels & Technologies

The term ‘advanced biofuels’ is used to describe renewable low carbon liquid fuels that are made from agricultural and forestry biomass, or bio-based wastes.

Biofuels include renewable hydrocarbon fuels that are produced from biomass sources through a variety of biological, thermal, and chemical processes such as Renewable Diesel, Renewable Gasoline, and Sustainable Aviation Fuels. These fuels meet the same fuel quality standards as the petroleum fuels they replace, and can be used in existing engines and infrastructure up to 100%.

Renewable synthetic fuels can also broadly reside within the ‘advanced’ category. Known also as ‘power-to-liquid’, ‘gas-to-liquid’ and ‘biomass-to-liquid’ fuels, these fuels can also function at up to 100% in existing engines and infrastructure.

Years of advanced biofuels use in Canada have proven advanced biofuels to be fully operable across the range of Canadian climatic conditions and end user needs.
