Fertilizer Canada’s Review of the OBPS Regulations – Consultation Paper

Our industry is committed to high standards for environmental sustainability, and we support science-based policy that achieves environmental objectives while also maintaining our industry’s global competitiveness. As part of our commitment, we have proactively conducted a Low-Carbon Technology Scan for the Canadian fertilizer industry which explains current manufacturing processes, evaluates new and emerging technologies against their emission reduction potential, commercial scalability, economic viability, and regional considerations. The scan also provides technology and policy recommendations based on this broad evaluation. Fertilizer Canada asks that ECCC review the key findings of our Low-Carbon Technology Scan Summary which explains that, while decarbonization opportunities exist for the Canadian fertilizer industry, there are significant barriers to the implementation of these technologies at our facilities in Canada, including the need for major investments in time and capital and a need for public infrastructure to facilitate the implementation and use of emissions-reducing technologies.
