Methane fueled cars? GJ City Council says 'Yes'

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. After a vote Wednesday night, the Grand Junction City Council has made significant new strides towards providing the Grand Valley with a new source of compressed natural gas.

Approving the measure unanimously the council officially gave city staff the go-ahead to create a contract for converting and transporting biogas from the Persigo Wastewater Treatment Facility to the CNG fueling station.

100,000 cubic feet of methane gas is created per day at Persigo and several years ago the byproduct was identified as a potential fuel source for the city's new CNG vehicle fleet.
