A pair of pioneers in biodiesel production in Canada have been recognized for their green efforts.
Timothy Haig and Kevin Norton of BIOX Corp picked up the 2009 Ontario Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of The Year – Cleantech Award. They were congratulated by the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association:
“BIOX is globally recognized as a biodiesel pioneer, and today’s cleantech entrepreneur award for Tim and Kevin is an affirmation of their pioneering efforts,” said Gordon Quaiattini, president of the Canadian Renewable Fuels Association. “BIOX is proof of the promise of renewable fuels in Canada. They are reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions, diversifying the fuel supply and creating new high value jobs.”
Th BIOX biodiesel plant in Hamilton, Ontario, one of the largest continuous flow biodiesel production facilities in the world, cranks out about 15 million gallons of the green fuel a year.
