North America’s newest biofuel test centre opens

Regina, SK – A new fully qualified and accredited biofuels test facility has opened in Saskatchewan, which will offer reasonably priced, fast and reliable tests to the biofuels industry on a fee-for-service basis.

The tests will help producers validate the quality of their product as well as helping them to ensure that it meets the full range of Canadian and international industry standards.

“Over the past several years, Milligan Bio-tech (MBTI) has been developing a biodiesel production technology in co-operation with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and the University of Saskatchewan,” says Zenneth Faye, executive manager of MBTI. “Having SRC’s Biofuels Test Centre located in the province will greatly improve turnaround times and our accessibility to their independent, third-party testing verification which MBTI requires to meet customers’ needs.”

“This facility, the newest biofuels test centre in North America, builds on SRC’s more than 20 years of experience providing testing services for the petroleum industry,” says Clay Serby, who is deputy premier and regional economic and co-operative development minister for the province. “Biodiesel and ethanol producers across North America will benefit from SRC’s unsurpassed analytical expertise and solid reputation.”
