Analyzes the Canadian vehicle manufacturing market and sales patterns to illuminate the possible impacts if Canada weakens its greenhouse gas emission standards in order to align with the U.S. federal government or maintains its existing standards and aligns with California and, most likely, 13 other U.S. states and the District of Columbia.

Ramping up HEFA+ deployment in aviation would likely create competition for feedstocks between aviation and renewable diesel in the road sector. It could also result in indirect land-use change from the increased use of food crops to create renewable diesel and HEFA+, thereby undermining the climate benefits of AJF deployment.

This case study shows that the actual CO2 reductions of 18.6% achieved in the 2018 Camry exceed the 17.7% reductions predicted by EPA models. This confirms that the OMEGA and LPM models accurately predict both new technology benefits and synergies between technologies. It also suggests that other studies contradicting EPA model outcomes are inaccurate and underpredict future technology benefits.
