Digester and landfill gases are widely used as fuel to produce electricity, drive pumps and fire boilers. It is crucial to understand the safety requirements as the migration of these gasses into buildings and other confined areas can pose the risk of explosion or asphyxiation.
The first edition of the bi-national ANSI/CSA-B149.6 - Code for Digester Gas, Landfill Gas, and Biogas Generation and Utilization was developed to help address these risks and serves as a key resource for workers who deal with the gasses across the United States and Canada.
ANSI/CSA-B149.6 applies to the operation and maintenance of digester gas and landfill gas systems and covers requirements for the production, handling, storage, and utilization of these gasses in newly constructed wastewater treatment plants and landfill sites. The Code also applies to additions and upgrades of existing systems.
