Atlas Disposal Industries is awarded Energy Commission funds to establish a natural gas fueling station to support private, public, and school fleet operations. The station includes a fast-fill fueling system and five slow-fill fueling systems capable of refueling 10 fleet vehicles overnight. The station is be fully powered using a portion of the green electricity produced at the Sacramento Area Transfer Station and Sacramento BioRefinery #1, a large commercial-scale, high-solids anaerobic digestion system currently under construction in California. The station addresses the critical lack of infrastructure to support fleets that operate on compressed natural gas and successfully demonstrates an integrated commercial-scale waste to energy facility that can produce renewable natural gas.
- Produces 172,000 diesel gallon equivalents of renewable natural gas with a carbon intensity of negative 21 grams carbon dioxide equivalent per megajoule.
- Also produces 750,000 diesel gallon equivalents of renewable natural gas with a carbon intensity of 75 grams carbon dioxide equivalent per megajoule.
- Powered by locally-generated electricity from an anaerobic digestion system running on source-separated food waste from area landfills.
- Includes one fast-fill fueling system and five slow-fill fueling systems.
- Creates 6 temporary and 2 permanent jobs.
