PT Chandra Asri Petrochemical Tbk has announced it is ready to operate Enclosed Ground Flare (EGF), a smokeless flare technology, at its petrochemical complex in Cilegon, Banten, Indonesia.

Reaching a total investment of US$14 million, EGF was built to minimise the social and environmental impacts of its plant operations.

EGF is capable of burning 220 tph of hydrocarbons using a closed combustion method without causing heat and noise. From an environmental perspective, EGF is designed to carry out the combustion process completely so that no hydrocarbons from combustion are discharged into the air. From a social perspective, EGF is able to reduce noise while eliminating flame and smoke.
