September 2017: Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) has engaged Kelly Sears to conduct an interim evaluation of the Next Generation Biofuels Fund. SDTC is a foundation established by the Government of Canada.

The NextGen Biofuels Fund (NGBF) was created to support the establishment of first-of-kind commercial-scale demonstration facilities for the production of next-generation renewable fuels and co-products from non-feed feedstocks. The evaluation study will examine the performance of the NGBF, its delivery and identify any lessons learned. The study will be carried out from September to November 2017.
