Renewable natural gas and fuels company Aemetis has been awarded a carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration characterisation well permit by the State of California.
Awarded to Aemetis’ subsidiary, Aemetis Carbon Capture, the permit is the last of several that will allow the US company to drill a CO2 sequestration characterisation well on a 24-acre Riverbank site.
Once complete, the CCS injection well is expected to sequester about 1.4 million metric tonnes per year of CO2, with approximately 200,000 metric tonnes of CO2 per year produced by the Aemetis sustainable aviation fuel and renewable diesel plant.
The characterisation well is designed to be drilled to a depth of around 8,000 feet to obtain the soil composition data required for the issuance of a final EPA Class VI CCS well permit.
