Aemetis installs Edeniq technology at Keyes, US plant

VISALIA, US: Edeniq, a biomaterials and sustainable fuels company, and Aemetis have entered into an agreement to install Edeniq technology at the Aemetis Advanced Fuels Keyes plant in California. Aemetis will install Edeniq’s proprietary Cellunators to boost ethanol yields and will conduct large-scale commercial testing of Edeniq’s cellulosic ethanol pathway platform.

Edeniq is installing Cellunators at Aemetis’ Keyes, California facility, which currently produces 60 million gallons of ethanol annually. Aemetis is also one of three ethanol producers working with Edeniq on the company’s pathway platform. Aemetis is testing the commercial feasibility of the pathway platform on site at their plant.

“One of the benefits of having a location in the Central Valley of California is that we can help our customers take advantage of the agricultural resources this area provides. The installation at Aemetis will allow us to work together to begin to utilize non-food plant material and will further demonstrate Edeniq’s mission of leveraging current industry assets to bring additional unrealized ethanol fuels to market,” said Brian Thome, President and CEO, Edeniq.
