As of June 30, 2014, Manitoba has imposed an emissions tax on petroleum coke (petcoke) used for industrial purposes through the Emissions Tax on Coal and Petroleum Coke Act. Revenue from the tax contributes to programs that help facilitate the conversion to renewable sources of energy, primarily biomass. The province also began to phase in a ban on petcoke and coal for heating purposes on January 1, 2014, with full compliance required by July 1, 2017.
