Piceance Basin Natural Gas Operations: Location Tour

Today’s trash might become tomorrow’s gas if you’re living in California.

At the facility, gas is collected from the natural decomposition of organic landfill waste. This process isn’t inexpensive: funding for the facility came in part from a $600,000 grant from the California Air Resources Board and $740,000 from the California Integrated Waste Management Board.
