Technical standards for biomethane and natural gas

Requirements for gas quality
The Governmental Decree No 19 / 2009 on the provisions of the Hungarian Gas Law (Act XL 2008) assures the non-discriminatory access to the gas grid. Biomethane is allowed to be fed into the grid as long as its quality meets the requirements of the national standard MSZ 1648:2000. This standard focuses on natural gas and does not give regulations on different biogas feedstock or on methods for adjusting the heating value. However the standard requires e. g. a strict limit for the oxygen content 0.2 % by Volume and a continuous online measurement of the gas quality.
