Sidewalk Labs released its Master Innovation and Development Plan (MIDP) for Toronto’s eastern waterfront yesterday. Entitled “Toronto Tomorrow”, the plan is expected to create significant Canadian jobs, tax revenues and GDP contributions. Derek Nighbor, President and CEO of Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) issued the following statement today in response to the MIDP: “The Toronto Tomorrow proposal prominently features the use of wood from Canada’s sustainably managed forests as a cornerstone of its project – including a plan to build with mass timber, to use wood to build affordable and below market housing for Torontonians, and to invest $80 million in mass timber manufacturing. In Canada and around the world, wood is experiencing a resurgence as a building material of choice because it is environmentally friendly as well as beautiful, durable, and high performing. This project is a great way to address a number of community needs in Toronto, while providing a boost to our rural and northern forestry communities. We could not be more excited to see this visionary project taking root in Toronto for millions to see and experience.”
The UPM BioVerno renewable diesel project reached a significant goal when the product was launched onto the market at the beginning of May 2015. Finnish energy company St1 has been selling UPM BioVerno as part of their Diesel plus fuel at its filling stations in Finland for almost a year now.
St1 confirms that an important share of its diesel customers use Diesel plus containing UPM BioVerno on a daily basis as there are over 100,000 Diesel plus refills in a day.
“For consumers this is a clear case as Diesel plus with UPM BioVerno is compatible with all diesel engines, just like traditional diesel. In addition, it is seamlessly compatible with the existing distribution infrastructure,” says Matti Pentti, Director, Commercial and Consumer sales at St1.
UPM BioVerno is delivered from Lappeenranta to the St1 blending terminal located in Hamina. It is then blended there with Diesel plus and delivered to St1 service stations across the country.
