18 & 19 July – Flare Solutions Workshops 2017

EPA’s new 40 CFR  63.670 and 63.671 flare regulations of Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) clean air act will come into effect. The new compliance will require refineries to monitor their emissions caused by flaring which is an undesirable process both environmentally and economically. Within the new compliance refineries have to monitor their Net Heating Value (NHV) of 270 BTU/SCF and additional the H2 concentration of the flare gas. With our organized “Flare Solutions Workshops” we brought different disciplines and partners together to learn more about the Refinery Sector Rule (RSR) and our WIM COMPAS, the market solution to comply with the flare gas legislation.

From Houston to New Orleans

At May 10th we participated at the first Flare Solutions Workshop in Houston, Texas. In cooperation with Sage, AirGas, Vector, CyboSoft and others we provide (potential) users of flare gas information about the improvement of their day-to-day operations. We brought different disciplines and partners together to learn more about the Refinery Sector Rule (RSR). At 18 and 19 July we will organize two more workshops. The 2 planned workshops will detail a roadmap to compliance with analytical, control, engineering and compliance solutions. The workshop is geared towards environmental, process, projects, and analyzer members of your flare team.

The preferred technology, the WIM COMPAS

The Hobré WIM COMPAS  for flare gas analysis and recovery is the preferred technology at supermajor refineries because of its proven track record in challenging applications and it’s low OPEX. The BTU analyzer can handle applications with high H2 fluctuations (0-100 mol%) and non-combustibles such as N2, CO2. Optionally the WIM COMPAS™ can directly measure the H2 concentration of flare gas, in accordance with 40 CFR 63.670 section J. The integrated H2 measurement enables the operator to use the so called “H2 credit” to increase the BTU of the flare vent gas directly. Our WIM COMPAS measures the H2 concentration with a 30 seconds response time that matches the BTU value update. Note that conventional Gas Chromatographs typically require 5-10 minutes to respond.
