biogas -- Release of ARB-OEHHA Report to CPUC

Posted: 15 May 2013 13:15:58
The purpose of this list serve is to notify interested parties
that the Air Resources Board (ARB) and the Office of
Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) are releasing a
joint report providing recommendations to the California Public
Utilities Commission (CPUC) on health-based standards for
biomethane injected into the common carrier pipeline pursuant to
Assembly Bill (AB) 1900. 

AB 1900, authored by Assemblyman Mike Gatto, requires the CPUC to
develop standards for constituents in biogas to protect human
health and pipeline integrity and safety by December 31, 2013. 
In support of the CPUC standards development efforts, the ARB and
OEHHA, in consultation with other State agencies, are to provide
recommendations by May 15, 2013, on health based standards for
constituents of concern in biomethane to be injected into the
common carrier pipeline.  Pursuant to these requirements, ARB and
OEHHA provided a report with the above information and
recommendations to the CPUC on May 15, 2013.  The report is also
available to the public at the attached link:
http://www.arb.ca.gov/energy/biogas/biogas.htm.  If you have any
questions about the information in this report, please contact
the technical staff identified in the same link.  

In addition, we encourage you to participate in the upcoming CPUC
public regulatory process to adopt standards for biomethane.  For
more information on the CPUC process, please contact Franz Cheng,
CPUC Public Utility Regulatory Analyst at fcc@cpuc.ca.gov.
