Aemetis, Inc. declares that its subsidiary Aemetis Biogas has accomplished a further seven miles of underground pipeline to move biogas from 5 new dairy digesters to the centralized Renewable Pure Fuel upgrading facility situated on the Aemetis Keyes biofuels plant. Together with the 4 miles of biogas pipeline commissioned in late 2020, Aemetis has now put in greater than 11 miles of pipeline and is on monitor to finish the 36-mile biogas pipeline community in 2022.
Development crews at the moment are engaged on a further 25 miles of pipeline spanning Stanislaus and Merced Counties to move biogas for Phases 2 and three of the venture. The Aemetis biogas pipeline venture, 52 diary digesters, central biogas upgrading, and PG&E gasoline pipeline interconnect amenities will carry an estimated $300 million of latest capital funding to California’s Central Valley, whereas producing extra revenues and new jobs for all kinds of companies in agricultural communities.
“With 5 dairy biogas digesters underneath development and scheduled to start biogas manufacturing by mid-year, the completion of this part of pipeline on time and underneath price range is one other vital milestone for the Aemetis Biogas dairy RNG venture,” mentioned Andy Foster, President of Aemetis Biogas. “By yr’s finish, we anticipate to have constructed 15 new dairy digesters and accomplished the 36-mile biogas pipeline community, offering speedy advantages to the area’s air high quality and the state’s low carbon transportation gas provide.”
In help of California’s quite a few local weather change initiatives to scale back greenhouse gasoline emissions (GHG) and supply adverse carbon depth (CI) transportation fuels, Aemetis plans to extend its renewable pure gasoline manufacturing to greater than 1.4 million MMBtu’s per yr of adverse carbon depth transportation gas, sourced from 52 dairy digesters situated within the state’s San Joaquin Valley, a area cited by the US EPA as having a few of the nation’s worst air high quality. The Aemetis Biogas dairy RNG venture is designed to scale back GHG emissions by an estimated 5.2 million metric tonnes of CO2 annually, equal to eradicating the emissions from 1.1 million vehicles from California roads annually.
