For a commercial dryer you need 10' clearance from the dryer vent to fresh air intake.

Quote
Clause 7.4.4 - A dryer shall be connected to a metal moisture-exhaust duct that terminates outdoors not less than 3 ft (1 m) from any pressure regulator vent termination and not less than 10 ft (3 m) from a fresh-air intake.

For a residential dryer you need 3'.

Quote
Clause 7.5.2 - A moisture-exhaust duct shall not terminate within 3 ft (1 m) in any direction of any pressure regulator vent termination or fresh-air intake.

Quote
Clause 8.3.7 - An air-supply opening shall not be located within 3 ft (1 m) of a moisture exhaust duct.
Note: A moisture-exhaust duct (e.g., a gas or electric clothes dryer discharge; spa exhaust) is considered to interfere with the combustion air intake when located within 3 ft (1 m) of the air intake.
