Aemetis, Inc. is an industrial biotechnology company producing renewable chemicals and fuels using patented microbes and processes.
Derived from the Scottish “Ae,” meaning “the one” and the Greek “Metis,” meaning “prudent wisdom,” Aemetis means “the one prudent wisdom,” referring to the prudence and wisdom of replacing petroleum with renewable chemicals and fuels.
Scientists at Aemetis are focused on the development and commercialization of our innovative industrial biotechnologies that produce renewable chemical and fuel substitutes for traditional petroleum-based products. Our technology platform helps companies increase their brand value and operating margins while decreasing their environmental footprint.
Our technology platform allows for the conversion of existing biorefineries, thereby substantially reducing capital expenditures, construction time and startup costs associated with building plants for processing biomass into renewable chemicals and fuels. This strategy enables Aemetis to quickly commercialize technologies by leveraging investments already made in existing biorefineries through joint ventures with existing biofuel plants.
