Trash to Gas
K-12 Essay Contest

energy sector is becoming an increasingly important part of the states

needs. If you think natural gas only comes from ancient fossil reserves,
think again. In 2000 words or less, tell us how does natural gas come
from renewable resources and how is it already being used to help
meet California’s clean energy goals.
