The report gives results of a study of industrial flare technology for control of gaseous combustible emissions from stationary sources. The study included evaluation of present engineering technology, evaluation of existing flare systems, assessment of present practices and problems, determination of major sources, and development of research recommendations including potential applications. The report summarizes emissions data, and gives emission factors for hydrocarbon waste streams, based on limited available data. It recommends the selection of applicable flare systems and components for flaring given waste gases. It discusses potential problems which may affect design and component selection. It gives cost guidelines based on discussions with flare vendors and users.
