BG-2: Level 2 Bacterial Gas Characterization

Applications: Useful for unequivocal identification of bacterial methane formed from recent organic materials. Particularly useful for identification of landfill gas and for distinguishing it from swamp gas or drift gas. Also useful for identifying methane derived from the bacterial decomposition of petroleum products.

Sample size required: Minimum sample size 50cc (STP), 200cc recommended. CH4 must be 3.0% and there should be sufficient sample to provide at least 3cc (STP) of CH4 (preferably much more).

Analyses includes: All analyses in BG-1 plus determination of 14C in CH4 by accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS).
