While a tiny move for regulatory standards, the California Public Utilities Commission’s adoption of standards for injecting biomethane into natural gas pipelines Jan. 16 is expected to expand renewable fuels in California. “I look forward to getting biogas up and going as part of our energy future,” commissioner Mike Florio said. He added, though, that “it’s very technical stuff.” The Jan. 16 decision establishes concentration standards for 17 biomethane constituents for addition to gas pipelines. “It helps broaden the market,” commissioner Mark Ferron said. He added that it “helps act as a hedge for smaller sources” of the fuel.
