BioCNG Selected to Construct Biogas Pipeline and Conditioning System
On Wednesday, BioCNG announced that it has been selected to design and build a biogas conditioning system and gas pipeline for the Persigo wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), which is jointly owned by the City of Grand Junction and Mesa County, Colorado. The BioCNG system will produce about 500 GGE per day from the WWTP digester gas, which will be piped about six miles to Grand Junction’s existing CNG fueling station. The CNG fuel will be used by a fleet of buses owned by Grand Valley Transit (GVT), as well as city refuse trucks, street sweepers and general utility pickups. BioCNG will engineer the system, obtain all necessary permits, manage the construction, and commission and start up the system. Future work may include investigation of an option to modify BioCNG system tail gas for use in the WWTP digester boiler, thereby saving on treatment plant operating costs.
