Wastewater Gas Flaring
In much the same way that decomposition in landfills creates gas, so too does decomposition in wastewater treatment facilities create gas. This gas is largely composed of carbon dioxide and methane, both potent greenhouse gases (GHG). Instead of allowing these gases to vent off into the atmosphere most facilities flare the gases. This prevents these potent GHGs from entering the atmosphere, reduces the toxins being released and diminishes the danger of combustion associated with venting.
