Biomethane — Quality Specifications for Injection into Natural Gas Distribution and Transmission Systems
This standard specifies the characteristics of biomethane at the injection point in the natural gas distribution or transmission system to ensure its compatibility with the characteristics of the natural gas present in the system into which it is injected.
It applies to biomethane produced from biogas derived from anaerobic decomposition, no matter the source of the organic material.
NOTE — Biomethane is sometimes called renewable natural gas (RNG) in North America, which is a more generic term. However, in this standard, the terms biogas and biomethane correspond to the definitions given in Chapter 3.
This standard does not cover biomethane produced and consumed on-site by the producer or biomethane produced and delivered by a dedicated gas line.
This standard does not cover synthetic gas (syngas).
This standard was developed to serve as a reference document for conformity assessment activities of specific products.
NOTE — Conformity assessment is defined as the systematic examination of the extent to which a product fulfils specified requirements.
