Flaring is the process of disposing of industrial and other combustible waste gas streams via a visible flame (flare). The flame can be enclosed in a chimney or stack.
Flares are widely used for the disposal of waste gases from several industrial processes, including process start ups, shutdowns, and emergencies. These processes are characterized by variable or intermittent flow. Flares are principally used where the heating value cannot be economically recovered. Applications include petroleum production, blast furnace and coke oven combustible gases, industrial chemical production, and landfills. Refinery
