Flares are a necessary safety system in processing facilities across many industries. Although the need for flaring systems isn’t likely to be eliminated, Zeeco continues to bring innovative solutions to market to reduce the impact of continuous flaring worldwide.
In April 2015 the World Bank introduced the “Zero Routine Flaring by 2030” initiative to promote sustainable and environmentally responsible production processes. The term “routine flaring” means non-safety related flaring of associated gases during normal production operations. Routine flaring can occur when a facility lacks the resources or infrastructure to recover or otherwise use the waste gas. The ““Zero Routine Flaring by 2030” initiative aims to eradicate the routine flaring of approximately 140 billion cubic meters of natural gas annually and eliminate the 300 million tons of CO2 emissions caused by that routine flaring.
Zeeco offers flaring solutions that reduce hydrocarbon (HC) and CO2 emissions – even under routine or “purge” conditions – and can also reduce operational costs:
Zeeco’s innovative technology for zero flaring applications can not only reduce harmful emissions and improve air quality, but it can also improve the lives of people living near process facilities and protect the people and equipment operating in them.
