Revised draft Quality Protocol for Biomethane from AD and landfill gas
 
The Environment Agency has published a revised draft Quality Protocol for Biomethane from landfill gas and anaerobic (AD) digestion of waste.  The revised draft takes account of comments received during public consultation between June and September 2012. 
 
You can review and make comments on the revised draft Quality Protocol for biomethane until close of play on Thursday 28 February 2013.
 

Key changes made in response to public consultation
The main change in the revised draft involves rationalisation and simplification of the gas quality compliance monitoring requirements.  This is in response to views that the original proposals could be overly burdensome, particularly for AD biogas and smaller operations.

The designated end uses for QP biomethane have been revised to:
- a fuel or raw material supplied for injection to the gas grid
- a fuel for use in an appliance that is suitably designed and operated for natural gas (changed from use as a fuel in road vehicles).
  

How can I view the revised draft Quality Protocol?
The revised draft Quality Protocol is now available to view or download in pdf form on the EPOW web pages of the Environment Agency website.  You will also find a copy of a document explaining the main changes made following consultation, and a copy of the Environmental Risk Assessment, which has been slightly revised to ensure clarity of some terms used.
