Abstract OVER the next three years approximately US$40bn worth of gas will be burned away by the world's major flaring countries, such as Russia, Nigeria, Iran, Iraq, Kazakhstan and Algeria, according to data from the World Bank. The resulting emissions are harmful to human health and the environment. Flaring is used to eliminate waste gas that is too expensive to use or transport or that poses a hazard to workers, nearby residents and the plant itself during non-routine occurrences such as emergencies, process upsets and equipment failure. Although the last five years has seen a 15% reduction in global flaring, there is still a lot of progress to be made
