In August 2015, a new integrated CSA/ANSI standard called "Code for Digester Gas, Landfill Gas and Biogas Generation and Utilization" will be published and will specify minimum standards for design, operation and maintenance of landfill gas systems. This SWANA Webinar examines those new standards and helps attendees understand how their LFG system might be subject to it.
Prior to 2011, the landfill gas industry across Canada was largely unregulated from a safety perspective, but in August 2011, the CSA adopted the CGA's code and published it as Section 6 of the B149 Natural Gas and Propane Gas Code. In December 2012, the province of Ontario's regulatory authority adopted and began enforcing the B149.6 code titled "Code for Digester Gas and Landfill Gas Installations".
Over the past 3 years, industry representatives worked on updating the B149.6 code to include biogas facilities and intends to publish the new version as a combined CSA/ANSI standard in August 2015.
The new code is made up of three main parts.
Part 1 applies to the installation of systems for the production, handling, storage, and utilization of digester gas in newly constructed wastewater treatment plants, as well as additions to, and the upgrading of, existing systems.
Part 2 applies to the installation of systems for the production, handling, and utilization of landfill gas in newly constructed landfill gas systems, as well as additions to, and the upgrading of, existing systems and temporary systems.
Part 3 of the code applies to the installation of systems for the production, handling, storage, and utilization of biogas in newly constructed biogas systems, where biogas is defined as any gas produced in a digester at a location other municipal wastewater treatment plant.
This webinar guides you through the new standard and provide important information about how it could affect your operation.
