On September 30, California governor Newsom signed AB 3163 into law! This law, previously known as the Salas bill (AB 3163) changes the definition of “biomethane” in Section 650 of California’s Public Utilities Code to include thermal gasification-derived gas. This law is not specific to any utility and as such generally grants statutory pipeline access for thermochemically produced renewable natural gas like ours throughout California. Utilities such as those listed below can now utilize more forms of renewable natural gas in their pipelines.
