Contents Notes
The U.S. EPA has contracted with Energy and Environmental Research Corporation to conduct a research program which will result in the quantification of emissions from and efficiencies of industrial flares. The study is being conducted in four phases: I -- Experimental Design, II -- Design of Test Facilities, III -- Development of Test Facilities, and IV -- Data Collection and Analysis. This report summarizes results of Phases I and II. The report discusses the technical literature on the use of flares and reviews available emission estimates. Technical critiques of past flare efficiency studies are provided. The parameters affecting flare efficiency are evaluated and a detailed experimental test plan is developed. The design o/ a flare test facility is discussed, including flare tips, fuel and steam supply/flow control and measurement, emissions sampling and analysis, and data acquisition and processing. Results of the testing program (Phases III and IV) will be provided in a later report.
