Landfill and Wastewater Treatment RNG Chemical and Physical Profiling: Increasing the Database Set

The objective of this research project is to increase the knowledge in chemical and physical characterization of landfill and wastewater treatment biomethane (renewable natural gas) through an expanded sampling and analysis program. Data will be used to augment the existing database constructed through the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) Project 250 and further refine the associated Guidance Document. The existing database is limited and focus on trace constituents is of most interest, to assist with studies on odorant fade or instrumentation development.
