Aemetis adopts EdeniQ corn oil extraction, cellulosic ethanol technology at former Cilion plant in California
In California, Edeniq announced that Aemetis, Inc., an advanced fuels and renew to boost ethanol yields and will conduct large-scale commercial testing of Edeniq’s cellulosic ethanol Pathway platform. Edeniq’s Cellunator technology produces sugars by milling corn and other plant materials into “right-sized” particles of feedstock that can be more easily converted. Edeniq is installing Cellunators at Aemetis’ Keyes, California facility, which currently produces 60 million gallons of ethanol annually. Edeniq owns and operates a demonstration-scale production facility in Visalia, California, which is currently converting a range of cellulosic feedstock into low-cost cellulosic sugars and cellulosic ethanol. In June, Edeniq received a $3.9 million grant from the California Energy Commission (CEC) as part of California’s Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program. The grant was given to Edeniq to help fund further developments and innovative enhancements to Edeniq’s proprietary cellulosic ethanol technology, enabling the low capital cost addition of cellulosic ethanol production to corn-based ethanol plants in California.
