University of California Buys Biogas To Meet Zero Carbon Goal !

The University of California has announced an exciting partnership with Anaergia to buy $42 million worth of biogas from Anaergia’s Rialto facility in Southern California.  The UC System is making the purchase as part of its plan to reach carbon neutrality – zero net carbon emissions – by mid century.  When fully built, the Rialto biogas facility will be the largest organic waste to energy facility in the country and will help California to meet its landfill reduction, methane reduction and clean energy goals.  Anaergia’s facility will cut greenhouse gas emissions by 220,000 metric tons per year, the equivalent of taking 46,700 cars off the road.
