Junction may convert sewage gas to fuel
Aspen, CO Colorado
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. ” Grand Junction officials are considering a $3 million plan to install equipment at a wastewater treatment plant to convert sewer methane gas into fuel for city vehicles.
Methane produced from solid waste would be converted to compressed natural gas under the plan. It still requires approval from the City Council and Mesa County Board of Commissioners.
Grand Junction purchasing manager Jay Valentine said the carbon and the smell would be removed from the gas in what he says basically is “turning poop into roses.”
Valentine says the gas would cost about $1.29 per gallon equivalent to produce and would first power the city’s sanitation trucks, then buses.

It’s hard to fight City Hall and even harder to fight well-funded neighbors who don’t want any development near them, a local man has realized. So he settled for less than what he and his partner bought the property for.
