The Railway Association of Canada (RAC) Announced Central Manitoba Railway (CEMR) Winner of 2012 Marketing Award
(Railway Association of Canada) The Railway Association of Canada (RAC) today announced that Central Manitoba Railway (CEMR) has been chosen as the winner of its 2012 Marketing Award. The RAC Marketing award was created to recognize shortlines for their role in accelerating and increasing the flow of goods through the rail freight supply chain and successfully improve customer service.
CEMR won the award for its innovative mobile, bio-diesel, fuel-blending solution which enables its customers to precision blend traditional diesel fuel with biodiesel fuel. The solution enables fuel suppliers to meet the requirements of Manitoba’s Biofuels Act which mandates that two per cent biodiesel be blended into overall sales of diesel fuel. Biodiesel is recognized by Manitoba as the most effective greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction technology.

The unit was also mobile by design so that it could be transported to any location, attached to up to four fuel sources and then used to create a blend from those sources into one final product.
