Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has joined with Aemetis, Inc. to officially commission the interconnection of a new renewable natural gas (RNG) facility in Keyes, California. The partnership between PG&E and Aemetis will enable transportation of clean RNG to California transportation customers and capture more than 1.6 million Btu/yr of dairy methane that would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere.
“We are proud to partner with Aemetis and California dairies to deliver clean renewable natural gas to Californians. This project is a key milestone in our goal to expand our renewable energy mix within our gas supply and evolve our system to be a safe, affordable, and reliable net-zero energy delivery platform,” said PG&E’s Senior Vice President, Gas Engineering, Janisse Quiñones.
At full build-out, a 40-mile gathering line will receive RNG produced at the Aemetis Biogas Central Dairy Digester Project and transport it through PG&E’s transmission pipeline system to end-use customers. Currently, the RNG transported from this project will directly support the transportation sector. The project estimates that emissions captured from more than 60 contributing dairies is equal to that of 1.1 million cars.
“Commissioning the biogas cleanup unit and interconnecting with PG&E’s gas pipeline is a significant milestone for Aemetis,” said Eric McAfee, Chairman and CEO of Aemetis.
