Project Description

The BioFuels energy project includes both the development of a methane gas treatment facility at the City of San Diego’s Point Loma wastewater treatment plant, and the installation of three fuel cells at multiple locations in San Diego. The purified methane gas from the wastewater treatment site were inserted into San Diego Gas and Electric’s natural gas pipeline and nominated for use at two of the fuel cell locations. A 2.8 MW fuel cell was located at U. C. San Diego and is part of the school’s East Campus Sustainability Park. The other two fuel cells were located at the City of San Diego’s Point Loma and San Ysidro wastewater treatment plants.
