Since most anaerobic tank vessels, storage systems and covers have physical limitations to hold high pressures, a majority of the biogas piping from these reactors operate at pressures slightly above atmospheric pressure (14.7 pounds per square inch (PSI)) from the reactor to the conveyance system.
