CURRENT PROJECTS

COMPLETED PROJECTS

BIOMETHANE

SB 840 (2016), a Senate Budget and Fiscal Review Committee trailer bill, requested that CCST complete a study analyzing the minimum heating value and maximum siloxane specifications for the delivery of biomethane to the public gas pipelines, and their impacts to cost, volume of biomethane sold, equipment operation, and safety.

This is important as it will affect biomethane producers, public utilities, and consumers. The study considered and evaluated 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.

Incoming CCST Council Chair and Stanford University Professor Jim Sweeney was chosen to serve as Steering Committee Chair for this report, and Stanford University Professor Adam Brandt served as the lead researcher. The report was completed in June 2018.
