PG&E, Aemetis Open Renewable Natural Gas Interconnection
A PG&E Corp. subsidiary and Aemetis Inc. have opened a renewable natural gas interconnection that will capture dairy methane and convert it to renewable natural gas for transportation customers in California.
The subsidiary, Pacific Gas and Electric Co., and Aemetis said Friday they officially commissioned the connection of a new Keyes, Calif., facility that will transport renewable natural gas to California customers through a PG&E pipeline. The gathering line will be 40 miles at full build-out and receive the renewable natural gas at the Aemetis Biogas Central Dairy Digester Project.
Janisse Quiñones, PG&E’s senior vice president of gas engineering, said the project helps expand the renewable energy mix in its gas supply.
Aemetis Chief Executive Eric McAfee said in prepared remarks that the company’s “ability to fuel trucks with negative carbon intensity RNG will contribute to California’s goal of carbon neutrality and will reduce transportation air pollution created by diesel emissions.”
