Refinery Flare Time

Flint Hills Resources has ongoing efforts to reduce emissions at its plants and refineries. A key component of the emissions reduction programs at its Texas and Minnesota refineries is the ability to reduce flaring – especially during times of startup, shutdown and malfunction.

The company completed a four-year collaborative effort with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to develop and share best practices aimed at reducing emissions during these periods.
