Grand Junction, CO calls biogas-to-transportation fuel project a huge success

By KKCO NBC 11 News.

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Cleaning city wastewater can be clean and green in more ways than one. Since 2015, the Persigo Wastewater treatment facility has been capturing its methane, a by product of cleaning our dirty water.

Officials have been able to convert that methane into a usable fuel for 62 city and county's vehicles.

It has also saved the city about $179,000 on gas.
