SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - The City Council in Sioux City has approved a $9.3 million project that will enable the city to capture gas at its wastewater treatment plant and sell it as renewable fuel.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2izPcXD ) the council voted Monday to hire West Des Moines-based engineering company Bartlett & West to oversee the treatment plant changes.

The council also approved about $16 million in maintenance and upgrades that will increase the treatment plant’s capacity.

It will take about two years to complete the renewable fuel project, which will capture gas created as a byproduct of the process used to break down raw sludge. The gas will be used in the city’s vehicle fleet or piped to a MidAmerican Energy or Northern Natural Gas pipeline for sale as renewable fuel.
