CN Fined $1 Million+ for Renewable Fuels Violation

by Bongarde Editorial


Of the 224 million litres of diesel fuel that CN imported between July 1, 2011 and Dec. 31, 2012, at least 4.48 million (or 2%) should have been renewable. But government inspectors found that only 3.672 million litres were renewable. CN pleaded guilty to violating the Renewable Fuels Regulations and was fined $25 and ordered to pay $1,01,627 more to promote environmental protection [Canadian National Railway Co., Govt. Press Release, May 17, 2018].
