Aemetis completes 20 miles of biogas pipeline and gets OK for 39 miles more

June 6, 2022 |

In California, Aemetis, Inc. announced the completion of 20 miles of biogas pipeline and approval for construction of the remaining biogas pipeline in Merced County, California. Construction of the 39-mile main biogas pipeline is on schedule for completion in Q4 2022.

This project milestone allows the installation of biogas pipeline in Merced County for construction of a pipeline for a total of 39 miles from the Aemetis ethanol plant in Keyes, California to dairies in Stanislaus County and Merced counties. The pressurized pipeline conveys conditioned, pressurized biogas from dairies to the Company’s centralized gas cleanup facility and the Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) interconnection system to inject renewable natural gas (RNG) into the gas utility pipeline.

At the Keyes plant, the biogas is upgraded to negative carbon intensity RNG for use as a transportation fuel in cars, trucks, and buses. The RNG is either delivered into the PG&E utility pipeline located onsite at the Aemetis ethanol plant, dispensed to trucks at fueling stations across California or at the RNG fueling station being built at the Aemetis plant.
