The Ethanol Expansion Program (EEP) aims to contribute to the expansion of fuel ethanol production and use in Canada and the reduction of transportation-related GHG emissions that contribute to climate change. The EEP builds on the existing Future Fuels Initiative. It has three components: a) provides one-time capital contributions to ethanol producers to enable the construction of new fuel ethanol facilities or the expansion of existing ones; b) extension of the existing National Biomass Ethanol Program; and c) discussions to identify ways of supporting the cellulose-based ethanol industry in Canada. The Ethanol Expansion Program is expected to greatly increase Canadas ethanol production capacity.
