  • City of Grand Junction Celebrates Completed BioCNG Project

    on 24 Apr 2015 by NGTNews
    Earlier this week, the City of Grand Junction, Colo., officially marked the completion of a $2.8 million compressed natural gas (CNG) project that has been over a decade in the making. Designed and installed by Wisconsin-based BioCNG LLC, the project will carry biomethane gas that is converted into CNG from the Persigo Wastewater Treatment Plant via [read more]

    Projects such as this unfortunately are all for show and seldom economically viable. I can guarantee there is a natural gas line much closer than 6 miles from that waste treatment plant that they could sell that gas into and save the 2 million dollar pipeline and have a biogas production that would actually pay out instead of wasting taxpayers dollars for a pony show. The Quasar plant at Columbus ohio is a good example of biomethane done right.

      CNG in Grand Junction is what made crossing Rockies on I-70 possible! It was provided based on completing this project as a commitment. Besides, like fuel cell EVs, there is now proof of what it costs so there can now be informed (as opposed to unsubstantiated claims) policy decisions by others for waste water treatment projects. Case in point, a $3M bicycle path draw bridge over a ship waterway was built in Alameda CA. I dare say none were built after that one because of cost. Examples are to be found everywhere in engineering - there are even several draw bridges in Seattle used by buses powered by overhead wires. Visualize that! (Cost effective, too)

        As for the economics, last link gives a complete summary of Grand Junction CO project by BioCNG of Madison Wisconsin:

          The BioCNG project carries bio-gas, converted to compressed natural gas (CNG) from the Persigo Wastewater Treatment Plant via an underground pipeline to the City’s Municipal Services Campus to where it is used to fuel the City’s fleet of CNG vehicles and County CNG Grand Valley Transit busses. The early stages of this project date back to 2003 when the concept of capturing the biomethane gas that was being flared off at Persigo and putting it to practical use.

          The design and installation of the project that runs along much of River Road and a portion of the Colorado Riverfront Trail was performed by BioCNG, LLC a subsidiary of Cornerstone Environmental Group.

          The project allows the City and County to fuel CNG vehicles at a reduced per-gallon rate. As a result of the decreased cost of fueling the fleet, a project payoff is estimated to be realized in approximately eight years. The methane bio-gas produced at Persigo and converted to CNG is the equivalent of 196,000 gallons of gasoline.
