Aemetis RNG facility receives EPA approval for D3 RIN generation
Aemetis Inc., a renewable natural gas and renewable fuels company focused on negative carbon intensity products, announced today that the U.S. EPA has approved the Aemetis Biogas Services subsidiary’s renewable natural gas (RNG) production facility for the generation of D3 renewable identification numbers (RINs) under the federal Renewable Fuel Standard. Six dairy biogas digesters are fully operational and a seventh dairy digester is scheduled to be operational in early June 2023.
The renewable natural gas produced by Aemetis is expected to generate several revenue streams including: sale of RNG for transportation use to replace petroleum diesel; sale of the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard credits that are used by fuel blenders to meet California carbon reduction and pollution offset mandates; sale of the RINs generated under the federal RFS; and sale of Inflation Reduction Act production tax credits, beginning in 2025.
