Microsoft & University of Wyoming Celebrate Biogas Project

By University of Wyoming.

The University of Wyoming and Microsoft are celebrating their collaboration in developing a zero-emission green data center that is fueled by methane biogas and allows the university to run high-performance computing and modeling applications from the Laramie campus.

A cable-cutting ceremony for the Cheyenne Biogas Power Plant at the Dry Creek Water Reclamation Facility was scheduled Nov. 6 at 10 a.m. The water reclamation facility, where the data center is housed, is located at 8911 Campstool Road in Cheyenne.

The data center is powered by a fuel cell that generates electricity by electro-chemically converting biogas emitted from the treatment plant.
