Flaring mainly happens when gas is produced as a byproduct of oil extraction. If there is no infrastructure to put this “associated gas” to productive use, it is simply burned off. Flaring creates local air and noise pollution. Bans on gas flaring have been ineffective. The only way to enforce a flaring ban would be to shut in these fields and cut off the income they provide. Because the government needs that revenue, flaring will continue until there is a viable outlet for the associated gas.
It is the burning of unused or excess natural gas. These gasses generally are waste-products from the Chemical industry- gasses obtained from landfills. Gas flaring is the process whereby excess and unusable gasses are being burnt off. Gas flaring is a controversial issue due to the associated extensive issue of releasing tons of greenhouse gasses. Many would rather see this released energy be used for other ends which is entirely possible.
