On 14 April 2018, the Warrior Biogas Project at the city-owned wastewater treatment plant in Dodge City, Kansas started operations at its facility to capture and clean biogas produced from municipal and industrial wastewater for distribution into Northern Natural Gas’s pipeline.

The US$9 million project is designed to clean the biogas produced through the anaerobic digestion processes treating wastewater from Dodge City residents and a nearby National Beef processing plant.

Dodge City’s move to harness the combination of wastewater biogas and nearby energy infrastructure highlights the potential for utilities to offset rising operating costs.
