Aemetis receives final permit to build the next 21 miles of

Fully licensed to begin construction of the 21-mile Phase 2 biogas pipeline in Stanislaus County, California.

CUPERTINO, CA, August 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – via NewMediaWire Aemetis, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMTX), a renewable natural gas and renewable fuels company focused on sub-zero carbon-intensive products, today announced that the final permit has been approved to begin construction of the next 21 miles of the pipeline. Aemetis Biogas Phase 2 in Stanislaus County, California. .

“The issuance of the County Road Phase 2 pipeline encroachment permit is a very important milestone for the Aemetis Biogas RNG project,” said Andy Foster, President of Aemetis Biogas, Inc. Biogas Pipeline Kilometers , we are ready to rapidly deploy the infrastructure necessary to connect our dairy digesters network and accelerate the adoption of dairy biogas as a carbon-negative fuel to replace diesel in heavy trucks and buses.

This milestone of the project allows for the installation of a biogas pipeline on roads in Stanislaus County for the construction of a pipeline that extends the existing pipeline by 4 miles by an additional 21 miles. The pipeline will transport conditioned biogas from the dairies to the Company’s centralized gas cleaning facility which is currently under construction at the Aemetis Advanced Fuels Keyes ethanol plant.

At the Keyes plant, the biogas will be transformed into carbon-negative (CI) renewable natural gas (RNG) for use as a transportation fuel in trucks and buses. The RNG will either be delivered in the PG&E pipeline located at the site of the Aemetis ethanol plant, distributed to trucks at the RNG refueling station under construction at the Aemetis plant, or used as energy treatment at the Aemetis plant to replace petroleum-based natural gas. .

The biogas pipeline encroachment permit was issued by the Stanislaus County Public Works Department. Previously, Aemetis had announced that it had received environmental approval for 32 miles of pipeline from the Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors for the Initial Study / Mitigated Negative Statement of the Phase Two Pipeline Project (IS / MND) , the key approval required to meet California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) clearance requirements prior to pipeline construction. The CEQA approval confirms that the mitigation measures in the biogas project will prevent or mitigate any environmental impact.

The company is completing the licensing process for an additional 13 miles of biogas pipeline in Merced County to connect additional dairies to Aemetis’ biogas cleaning facility at the ethanol plant. The initial four-mile Phase 1 pipeline project was completed and commissioned in the third quarter of 2020 in conjunction with the completion of the Company’s first two dairy digesters.

When completed, the biogas cleaning center will produce over one million MMBtu of RNG. Recently, Aemetis received a CI score of 426 for gas from the company’s first two dairy digesters, which is currently used as process energy in the ethanol plant. In addition, the system will displace 6.88 million diesel gallon equivalents (DGE) and eliminate 2,632,149 metric tonnes of CO2 equivalents per year. The $ 12 million pipeline project and $ 12 million biogas cleanup facility are being funded in part by a $ 4.2 million grant from the California Energy Commission.
