Ontario plans to raise by half the ethanol content required in gasoline in a move to fight climate change that could also benefit Southwestern Ontario’s vast corn belt.

The province says it will gradually increase the required ethanol content in gasoline to 15 per cent from 10 per cent by 2030.

Made from corn, most of which in Ontario is grown in Southwestern Ontario, ethanol is also produced in the region, home to major refiners in Sarnia, Chatham, and Aylmer.
