Axens signs agreements with Aemetis for its project in California

June 11/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Axens has signed a license agreement for its Vegan renewable hydroprocessing technology with Aemetis, Inc. for its Carbon Zero 1 project in Riverbank, California, according to Hydrocarbonprocessing.

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.

Today 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, stated Romain Lemoine, VP of Process Licensing, Axens Americas.

As MRC reported previously, earlier this month, Raizen Argentina, Shell licensee, selected Axens for the modular supply of a FCC gasoline hydrodesulphurization unit Prime-G+ in its Buenos Aires refinery.

Ethylene and propylene are the main feedstocks for the production of polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), respectively.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 576,270 tonnes in the first three month of 2021, up by 4% year on year. Low density polyethylene (LDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) shipments increased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market totalled 410,890 tonnes in January-March 2021, up by 56% year on year. Supply of homopolymer PP and PP block copolymers increased.
