Ground Flares: Air Quality Approvals and Requirements

Expo A2

Speaker: Blake Soyars, Department Manager/Environmental Services, Burns & McDonnell

Pressure-assisted multi-point ground flare systems are used to control organic vapor emissions for a growing number of chemical manufacturing facilities. Ground flares serve the same purpose as conventional elevated flares, but current air quality regulations and approval processes are more complicated for ground flares. We will present key steps and challenges in the ground flare approval process, including the TCEQ Alternate Method of Control (AMOC) process and EPA Alternative Means of Emission Limitation (AMEL) process. This presentation will discuss key compliance and permitting implications specific to ground flares at Texas chemical facilities, and will use actual Texas ground flare projects as examples to share realistic permitting and approval timelines.
