Description Paper from the AFRC 2017 conference titled Regulatory Update for Refinery and Chemical Sector Flares
Abstract On December 1, 2015, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) published amendments to Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) Subparts A, CC, and UUU. These amendments include provisions which affect a number of different refinery process units, including flares. The flare requirements are intended to ensure flares achieve at least 96.5% combustion efficiency when regulated material is sent to them. These requirements are similar (but not identical) to many of the requirements set forth in Consent Decrees between the USEPA and refiners and petrochemical facilities under the Flare Enforcement Initiative, and similar rules are expected to be promulgated for other industries in the near future.; This presentation will provide an overview of these new flare requirements and focus on their applicability to the petrochemical industry as a whole.
