BIOMETHANE

biomethane

Continuing our role in providing independent assessments on California energy issues, CCST has been asked to assess two issues that impact the delivery of biomethane.

Pursuant to Senate Bill 840 (Senate Budget Committee, 2016), the California Public Utilities Commission requested CCST to conduct an independent scientific assessment of the minimum heating value and maximum siloxane specifications for the delivery of biomethane to public gas pipelines. The purpose of the study is to examine impacts to cost, volume of biomethane sold, equipment operation, and safety.

CCST's study will also consider and evaluate other states' standards, the source of biomethane, the dilution of biomethane after it is injected into the pipeline, and the equipment and technology upgrades required to meet the specifications.
