The City of Omaha is moving forward with a plan to turn human waste into green energy, and make millions of dollars in the process.

With a $20 million investment approved last month, one of the city’s wastewater treatment plants will increase its ability to turn the waste into renewable natural gas, also known as biogas.

The project will allow the city to profit off its biogas production and contribute to the renewable energy market.

“It’s a big step for Omaha on climate initiatives and moving toward net zero emissions,” said David Sykora, plant manager.
