1/2 Mill. for NM Landfill

Got gas? Yes we do ABQ and now we’ve been given a federal grant to do something with it – for a fraction of the misappropriated APS budget Albuquerque’s Cerro Colorado landfill is to convert methane gas generated by decomposing materials into usable energy for the city.

U.S. Senators Jeff Bingaman and Tom Udall recently announced the $500,000.00 in funding which will come from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Climate Showcase Communities initiative for use in increasing the cities energy efficiency, reducing greenhouse emissions and saving money.

“First, the project will use the gas to fire a new kiln at a glass recycling facility.

Then the program will pipe the gas to Bernalillo County’s detention facility to fire heating and hot water boilers.” – Bloomberg Business Week
