Flares are used to eliminate waste gas, which is not feasible to use or transport. Legislation around flaring is increasingly intensified as flaring is an undesirable process both environmentally and economically. Moreover, it results in health and safety issues and in waste of energy, which can be utilized for future generations.

For this reason, users are forced to lower their flaring activities to a minimum. Flare gases are increasingly blended into the fuel gas systems to be combusted in for instance, industrial boilers. Besides the elimination of waste gas, flares are an important part of a plants safety system. Non-waste gas released during an upset condition is typically combusted in a flare system.
