Aemetis operates 110 million gallons per year of renewable fuels capacity and is focused on rapidly deploying the Aemetis Biorefinery technology platform to produce renewable chemicals at commercial scale.
We have over 130 employees worldwide at research and development and production facilities in North America and Asia.
Aemetis owns and operates a 60 million gallon per year renewable ethanol production facility in Keyes, California. As a byproduct of ethanol production at the Keyes plant, more than 430,000 tons per year of wet distillers grains (WDG) are produced and shipped throughout Califonia’s Central Valley as animal feed for dairies and feedlots.
The Keyes plant is a leader in environmentally responsible ethanol production with positive energy balance and zero water discharge. In addition, the plant’s combined heat and power (CHP) steam turbine unit generates all of the operating electric needs of the plant, eliminating dependence on the state’s electrical grid.
Aemetis owns and operates a 50 million gallon per year integrated fuels and chemical production facility in Kakinada, India. The facility is connected via pipeline to the deep-water port of Kakinada and is licensed to sell chemicals and fuels in the domestic India market and into the international market.
Our Kakinada, India facility operates three refining units: biodiesel, glycerin, and edible oil. Biodiesel, produced from renewable non-edible natural oils, is sold as a transportation fuel and also as a chemical in the textile market. Glycerin has multiple applications as a specialty chemical in the paint, textile, cosmetic, and medical industries. Edible Oils are sold into the Indian food market, mainly to industrial bakers and olien refiners.
Aemetis scientists engage in cutting-edge research and development efforts at our laboratory in the Maryland Biotechnology Center, located on the campus of the University of Maryland. Aemetis holds nine granted patents on its proprietary technology for the production of renewable fuels and biochemicals.
At the Maryland Center, Aemetis scientists are working to commercially delploy our patented microbial organism and enzymes which convert a variety of renewable feedstocks such as sugar, starch, and cellulose into renewable fuels and chemicals.
