The presentations will include the Aemetis Five Year Plan focused on negative carbon intensity renewable natural gas, renewable jet/diesel fuel produced using cellulosic hydrogen, and other low carbon intensity renewable fuels projects that Aemetis is undertaking to maximize the value of the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard, federal Renewable Fuel Standard, and IRS 45Q carbon sequestration tax credits.
McAfee’s presentation will feature the Aemetis Biogas Central Dairy Project and the Aemetis Carbon Zero renewable jet and diesel fuel project, as well as the existing 65 million gallon per year ethanol plant in Keyes, California and the 50 million gallon per year capacity high grade distilled biodiesel plant in India.
The Aemetis Five Year Plan presentation is posted on the Investors section of the Aemetis website at https://www.aemetis.com/investors/presentation/.
The Aemetis dairy Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) project has completed two digesters, a four-mile pipeline and a unit to utilize the biogas to replace petroleum natural gas in operating the Keyes ethanol plant near Modesto, CA. An additional 15 dairies and 31 miles of pipeline, as well as biogas cleanup, compression and utility pipeline interconnection units, are being built and are scheduled to be operational by Q2 2022.
The Aemetis Carbon Zero renewable jet and diesel plant design commercializes patented technology exclusive to Aemetis for the production of renewable jet and diesel fuel for aviation and commercial truck markets utilizing negative carbon intensity cellulosic hydrogen from waste orchard wood. The Aemetis “Carbon Zero 1” plant has a planned capacity of 45 million gallons per year and will be located at the 142-acre Riverbank Industrial Complex, a former US Army ammunition plant in Riverbank, California.
The renewable jet and diesel fuel produced at the Aemetis Carbon Zero plant may be used in today’s airplane, truck, and ship fleets without significant changes in fueling infrastructure or engines. Aemetis recently announced a $2 billion bid process to airlines and fuel blenders for the Carbon Zero biorefinery.
The Aemetis Carbon Zero 1 renewable jet and diesel fuel plant, the Aemetis Biogas Central Dairy renewable natural gas project, and energy efficiency upgrades to the Aemetis Keyes ethanol plant include $38 million of grant funding and other support from the USDA, the US Forest Service, the California Energy Commission, the California Department of Food and Agriculture, and PG&E’s energy efficiency program.
Aemetis has a mission to transform renewable energy into below zero carbon transportation fuels. Aemetis has launched the Carbon Zero production process to decarbonize the transportation sector using today’s infrastructure.
Aemetis Carbon Zero products include negative carbon intensity renewable jet and diesel fuel that can immediately “drop in” to be used in airplane, truck and ship fleets. Aemetis low carbon fuels have substantially reduced carbon intensity compared to standard petroleum fossil-based fuels across their lifecycle.
Headquartered in Cupertino, California, Aemetis is a renewable natural gas, renewable fuel and bioproducts company focused on the acquisition, development and commercialization of innovative technologies that replace traditional petroleum-based products and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Founded in 2006, Aemetis has completed Phase 1 and is expanding a California biogas digester network and pipeline system to convert dairy waste gas into Renewable Natural Gas (RNG). Aemetis owns and operates a 65 million gallon per year ethanol production facility in California’s Central Valley near Modesto that supplies about 80 dairies with animal feed. Aemetis also owns and operates a 50 million gallon per year production facility on the East Coast of India producing high quality distilled biodiesel and refined glycerin for customers in India and Europe. Aemetis is developing the Carbon Zero renewable jet and diesel fuel integrated biorefinery in California to utilize distillers corn oil from ethanol plants to produce low carbon intensity renewable jet and diesel fuel using cellulosic hydrogen from waste orchard wood and other negative carbon intensity biomass, and pre-extract cellulosic sugars from the waste biomass to be processed into high value cellulosic ethanol at the Keyes plant. Aemetis holds a portfolio of patents and related technology licenses for the production of renewable fuels and bioproducts. For additional information about Aemetis, please visit www.aemetis.com.
