Biogas Flares for Municipal and Industrial Wastewater Treatment Plants

November 25, 2022

With decades of experience in supplying gas flare systems for wastewater treatment plants, Hydroflux provides biogas flare systems for a variety of applications. Biogas flares are required to allow biogas to be safely burned off when biogas is not being re-used, to avoid the release of the methane-rich biogas to the environment.

Methane is a potent greenhouse gas and according to the UN environment programme, it is 80 times more potent over a 20-year period to global warming than CO2. Safely combusting the biogas converts the CH4 in the biogas to CO2 which reduces not only the greenhouse potential but also odour emissions and release of H2S.
