TORONTO (ICIS)--BIOX has agreed a deal to supply Shell Canada with biodiesel, the Canadian renewable fuels firm said on Wednesday.

Under the deal, BIOX will supply the biodiesel via pipeline from its 67m litre/year refinery in Hamilton, near Toronto, to a nearby Shell distribution terminal. The pipeline is expected to be completed by late 2013.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

"This agreement provides Shell Canada access to a secure, stable supply of renewable content for our diesel with the most efficient logistics possible," said Esther Atere, leader of business development at Shell Canada.

"As well, it will assist Shell Canada in achieving the federal [government] mandate of 2% renewable content in diesel fuel and heating distillate oil requirements," Atere added.
