Aemetis selects Vegan® technology from Axens for its carbon zero project

Today Axens is pleased to announce that it has signed a license agreement for its Vegan® renewable hydroprocessing technology with Aemetis, Inc. for its “Carbon Zero 1” project in Riverbank, California. Axens is also providing the basic engineering, catalyst supply, as well as the proprietary equipment for the conversion of ultra-low carbon intensity, non-edible vegetable and other non-edible oils along with renewable hydrogen in partnership with Gulf Process Gases to produce a flexible mix of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and renewable diesel fuel.

"The Axens technology provides high yields of jet fuel while maximizing the carbon capture and sequestration value that is unique to the Aemetis Carbon Zero 1 project. The experienced Axens team has been highly responsive and proactive, enabling our project to move forward on schedule and within our budget expectations. We believe that the Axens technology will provide much better overall economics while having a lower capital cost than alternative technologies for renewable jet and diesel fuel production" Eric McAfee, Chairman and CEO of Aemetis.

"Todays Axens is pleased to announce yet another key step in the deployment of Aemetis’ Carbon Zero 1 project. While we are excited to renew our support to Aemetis vision, today also marks another significant milestone for Axens’ Vegan® technology position in the sustainable and renewable biofuels market" Romain Lemoine, VP of Process Licensing, Axens Americas.
