Aemetis to begin procurement for cellulosic ethanol facility in California

March 13, 2018 |

In California, Aemetis Inc. announced that it has achieved a major engineering milestone with its engineering firm, ATSI, by completing front end loading (FEL) engineering for its 12 million gallon per year cellulosic ethanol plant in Riverbank, California. In early 2017, Aemetis and ATSI began the design of the integrated gas fermentation facility at the Riverbank plant, which combines LanzaTech’s gas fermentation technology with InEnTec’s arc furnace gasification technology. After nine months of engineering, optimization and demonstration plant testing, Aemetis has now completed all engineering necessary to begin the procurement of long lead-time equipment for the Riverbank facility. Aemetis is currently engaging with vendors and contractors to coordinate the construction of the initial 12 million gallons of cellulosic ethanol in California, in addition to each subsequent phased build out.
