biogas -- Upcoming CPUC Workshop on Biogas Standards on May 2, 2013

Posted: 25 Apr 2013 15:44:54
This is to inform you that on May 2, 2013, the California Public
Utilities Commission will be conducting a second public workshop
regarding the development of biogas standards per Assembly Bill
1900 (Statutes of 2012, Chapter 602). This workshop will be held
at the Cal EPA Headquarters Building, Byron Sher Hearing Room at
1001 I Street Sacramento, CA beginning at 10:30 AM. The workshop
will be webcast and can be viewed at
http://www.calepa.ca.gov/broadcast/.  For more information on the
workshop, please contact Franz Cheng, CPUC Public Utility
Regulatory Analyst at fcc@cpuc.ca.gov.

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.
