Clean Fuels Fund - Building New Domestic Production Capacity

Canada’s clean fuels industry must immediately, and significantly, increase its current capacity to play the critical role needed in our net-zero future. To do this, it will be essential to overcome the barrier of the upfront capital cost that private sector investment faces in the buildout of new clean fuels production capacity.

To that end, the Clean Fuels Fund will provide the private sector with cost-shared, conditionally repayable funding to build new, or retrofit or expand existing, clean fuel production facilities in Canada.

Support is also available for feasibility studies, basic engineering studies and detailed front-end engineering studies for new facilities, facility expansions or facility conversions.

Program benefits

Funding the build-out of new production capacity will:

grow the domestic production capacity for clean fuels including clean hydrogen, advanced biofuels, renewable natural gas, and sustainable aviation fuel, across Canada

offer new opportunities for Canada’s energy sector in the transition to producing cleaner sources of energy

support Canada’s efforts to reach net-zero by 2050

position Canada globally to reap economic, environmental, and social benefits of the energy transition
