Turning Wastewater into Car Fuel? San Mateo can do it!

Following the theme of good environmental stewardship, I will be voting to approve a $2.4 million grant application by City staff to the California Energy Commission for a project to turn sludge from the City's wastewater treatment plant into biofuel capable of being used by the City's fleet of vehicles.

This project is just one of many that our hardworking City staff are working on to help reduce the carbon footprint of the City of San Mateo.  I look forward to voting in favor of this grant application at the Monday, March 3 City Council meeting!
