Roseville addressing climate change by using wastewater to fuel garbage trucks

In a move it is calling a "revolutionary waste to fuel" project, the city of Roseville is working to turn organic wastewater into renewable natural gas. The move is aimed at powering its fleet of garbage trucks and reducing its carbon footprint. "Using this new plant will help decrease greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change. The city currently has 14 RNG-powered trucks and intends to add 33 more," read an email from the city. The city also highlighted that a move to more eco-friendly RNG fuel could result in over a 50% savings per gallon compared to diesel.
