The largest U.S. natural gas distribution utility said Thursday that it has started pumping natural gas generated from cow manure through its pipelines in an effort to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions.

Southern California Gas Co., a unit of Sempra Energy (SRE), said it would be using natural gas from Calgren Dairy Fuels LLC, which is produced at a facility in Pixley, Calif. Natural gas can be produced from dairy manure, food waste, landfills and wastewater-treatment plants.

The methane gas generated is "carbon-negative," the companies said, and can be used in trucks and buses and fuel heating systems, to generate electricity and for cooking.

"Developing renewable natural gas is a smart and cost-effective solution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation and building sectors," said Sharon Tomkins, Southern California Gas's vice president for customer solutions and strategy. "Replacing just 16% to 20% of our traditional natural gas with renewable natural gas would reduce emissions equal to electrifying 100% of buildings in the state."
