Flare Compliance

Navigating the Intricacies of New Flare Regulations

Flares are essential to many industrial operations because they safely combust the release of undesirable or excess combustible gases. In recent years, flares top the EPA’s priority list—including a National Enforcement Initiative, Consent Decrees, NSPS Subpart Ja, and recent amendments to the Refinery Sector Rule.

Through our unmatched insights on the fundamentals of flares, the intricacies of various flare monitoring techniques and new flaring regulations, we help facilities comply with regulations, implement Consent Decree provisions, and optimize flare system performance.

Each flare system is unique and requires individual consideration. Sage ATC’s methodical approach, built from hands-on work in the field, produces flare results that are practical and implementable.
