Pima County Pipeline-Quality RNG Facility Design
Pima County, Arizona needed a facility that would allow for the beneficial reuse of approximately 500 to 850 SCFM of raw biogas by upgrading it into renewable natural gas.
By partnering with Bartlett & West and Ashton Construction design-build time, the County decided to self-fund, own and operate the facility. Project highlights include an acoustical sound wall due to the site’s proximity to a school, and accelerated scheduling to complete installation before the end of 2019.
The County will diversify its renewable natural gas revenue by creating offtake agreements with multiple sources. Locally, a fraction of the RNG will be utilized in the City of Tucson’s bus fleet. Nationally, the County will work toward earning revenue through the Renewable Fuel Standard program as well as California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard program.
