US biotech company Aemetis has been awarded a $4.1 million (€3.7 million) grant to construct a biogas upgrading facility. Aemetis’ subsidiary company, Aemetis Biogas, received the grant from the California Energy Commission (CEC).
The new facility will convert dairy biogas to renewable natural gas (RNG) as a final processing step after biogas is delivered via pipeline from anaerobic digesters that Aemetis is building in California. The company is building more than a dozen anaerobic digesters at local dairies in Stanislaus and Merced Counties, with plans to expand in the future.
