Aemetis Names Biogas Pipeline Construction Contractor (Ind. Report)
Aemetis
Date: 2021-08-17
Cupertino, California-headquartered renewable natural gas (RNG) and renewable fuels specialist Aemetis, Inc.reports it has awarded a construction services contract to Machado & Sons Construction Inc. to construct the Company’s 32-mile biogas pipeline extension connecting multiple dairy anaerobic digesters throughout Stanislaus and Merced Counties in California.

The pipeline is part of the Aemetis Biogas Central Dairy Digester Project which is developing a network of lagoon digesters connected via a biogas pipeline to produce renewable natural gas (RNG).

The pipeline will transport the renewable biogas from the dairies to the Aemetis biogas upgrading facility at the Aemetis ethanol production plant in Keyes, California, where the biogas will be transformed into commercial-grade RNG for use as a carbon-negative “drop in” transportation fuel.

The planned 52 dairies in the Aemetis biogas project are expected to capture more than 1.4 million MMBtu of dairy methane and reduce greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to an estimated 5.2 million metric tonnes of CO2 each year. The captured methane will be transformed to carbon-negative transportation fuel to displace petroleum-based diesel throughout the State of California. The 5.2 million metric tonnes of annual CO2 emissions reduction from the Aemetis Biogas project is estimated to reduce CO2 emissions equivalent to removing 1.1 million cars from the road.

. Aemetis Carbon Zero products include zero carbon fuels that can “drop in” to be used in airplane, truck, and ship fleets. Aemetis low-carbon fuels have substantially reduced carbon intensity compared to standard petroleum fossil-based fuels across their lifecycle.

Ont. Increasing Opportunity for On-Farm RNG Prod. (Ind. Report)
Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs,
Date: 2021-07-12
In Guelph, the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs reports it is changing its biogas regulations to create new ways for farmers to expand the emerging biogas and renewable natural gas (RNG) market in the province and creating economic opportunities while maintaining the province's strict environmental protections.

The revised regulation will enable new on-farm biogas systems and expansion of existing systems to be more easily approved and at a lower cost, and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by diverting waste from the landfill through increased maximum allowable limits and new types of off-farm anaerobic digestion materials and by encouraging production of renewable natural gas (RNG).

According to the release, "changes to regulations under the Nutrient Management Act will create more opportunities for farmers to treat on-farm materials as well as other types of off-farm food and organic waste materials in on-farm regulated mixed anaerobic digestion facilities. This will enable an increase in on-farm production of biogas to generate renewable natural gas and will provide Ontario farmers with a new source of on-farm income. There are approximately 40 agri-food anaerobic digesters in the provinces $35 million-a-year biogas sector."

General Regulation O. Reg. 267/03 under the Nutrient Management Act, 2002 establishes requirements for regulated mixed anaerobic digestion facilities. It is jointly administered by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) and the Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks. OMAFRA is responsible for approvals, training and certification. MECP is responsible for inspection and enforcement to ensure compliance.

Date: 2021-06-14
Atlanta-based Chart Industries, Inc., a provider of technology, equipment and services related to liquefied natural gas, hydrogen, biogas and CO2 Capture and other applications, is reporting a 3-year MoU with Lysaker, Norway-headquartered TECO 2030 to jointly develop technological solutions that will capture carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted by ships and subsequently store it in liquid form.

The agreement involves the joint development of onboard carbon capture solutions for ships using the Cryogenic Carbon Capture™ (CCC) technology developed by Sustainable Energy Solutions (SES) which was acquired by Chart in December 2020. The SES patented technology, which utilizes Chart's expertise in cryogenic equipment and systems, will separate the CO2 from the ships' exhaust gases, resulting in a high purity liquid CO2 product that is stored onboard in cryogenic storage tanks to be either permanently stored in underground geological formations or be used in CO2 -- consuming industries.

When fully developed, the carbon capture solution will be available as a key element in the TECO 2030 Future Funnel, an exhaust gas cleaning system for ships. TECO 2030 is also developing hydrogen fuel cells for the maritime industry. These will enable ships to switch from fossil fuels to green hydrogen produced by renewable energy and thereby emissions-free.

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) aims to reduce carbon intensity in international shipping by 40 pct by 2030, and to cut the total annual greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping by at least 50 pct by 2050 compared to 2008.
