City of Boulder and Western Disposal to Cut Transportation-Related Emissions

The City of Boulder is partnering with Western Disposal for the sale of renewable natural gas (RNG) generated at the city’s Water Resources Recovery Facility (WRRF).

The RNG, which will be produced from biogas, which is derived from the breakdown of organic matter in sewage, will fuel up to 38 of the 56 commercial vehicles Western Disposal uses to serve Boulder and Broomfield Counties. Converting to RNG is expected to reduce county-wide carbon emissions by the equivalent of 265,000 gallons of diesel fuel per year.
