Aemetis to supply 1.6 million metric tons annually of CO2 for CCS

June 24, 2021 |

In California, Aemetis, Inc. announced that it has opened negotiations for the supply of 1.6 million metric tons (MT) per year of CO2 for Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) to be located at or near the two Aemetis renewable fuels plant sites in Central California near Modesto.  It is anticipated that the capacity of each injection well site will be approximately one million metric tons per year, for a combined total of two million MT of CO2 sequestration per year.

Recently, the Aemetis Carbon Capture, Inc. subsidiary was established to build carbon sequestration projects to generate LCFS and IRS 45Q credits by injecting CO2 into wells which are monitored for emissions to ensure the long-term sequestration of carbon underground. California’s Central Valley is well established as a major region for large-scale natural gas production and CO2 injection projects due to the subsurface geologic formation that retains gases.

The planned 52 dairies in the Aemetis Biogas project are expected to produce approximately 50,000 metric tons of CO2 each year.  The renewable jet/diesel plant under development is expected to produce more than 200,000 metric tons per year of CO2.  The remaining 1.6 million metric tons of annual CO2 injection capacity are expected to be filled by compressed CO2 delivered via truck or rail to the two Aemetis CCS sites from renewable diesel plants and refineries that supply fuels to the California market.
