Organic waste can be used to produce biogas for use as transportation fuel to generate electricity, providing heating and cooling, provide renewable hydrogen to power fuel cells, and more. Biogas can be used onsite or cleaned up and injected into gas pipelines for use in other locations. California enacted AB 1900 (Gatto) in 2012 to increase and facilitate pipeline biomethane use in California. As a result, the California Public Utilities Commission has adopted new standards for pipeline biomethane and allocated $40 million to help cover interconnection costs for pipeline biogas. The new standards and BAC’s comments on them are below.
