arbcombo -- Status on Activities to Support the Development of Biomethane Standards

Posted: 16 Jan 2013 14:13:06
The purpose of this list serve notice is to provide interested
parties with an update on the status of efforts to develop
biomethane standards pursuant to AB 1900, and to invite
stakeholders to provide input to the process. This list serve
notice was originally sent to the “biogas” list serve on December
21st, 2012 and is now being forwarded to other list servers that
may have members potentially interested in this subject matter. 

AB 1900, authored by Assemblyman Mike Gatto, requires the
California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to develop
standards for constituents in biogas to protect human health and
pipeline integrity and safety.  In support of the CPUC standards
development efforts, the Office of Environmental Health Hazard
Assessment (OEHHA) and the Air Resources Board (ARB), in
consultation with other State agencies, are to undertake certain
actions.  Specifically, OEHHA is tasked with compiling a list of
constituents of concern (constituents) found in biogas that could
pose a health risk and that are at levels that significantly
exceed the concentrations of those constituents in natural gas. 
OEHHA is also to determine health protective levels for these
constituents.  ARB is tasked with developing realistic exposure
scenarios and identifying the associated health risk to utility
workers and gas end users; determining the concentrations of
these constituents in biogas necessary to protect public health;
and identifying monitoring, testing, reporting, and recordkeeping
requirements necessary to ensure that health protective levels
are maintained.

ARB website at:  http://www.arb.ca.gov/energy/biogas/biogas.htm
