Abstract

The goal of this project is to find an effective way to increase the combustion efficiency industrial flares under low flow systems by using air. When fuel is combust, there is a release of hydrocarbons, which affects the environment known as global warming. However, engineers never found a way to keep combustion efficiency high without affecting the ozone layer. On the other side, if the flare is not producing at a high efficiency rate it cost lots of money for the company to run the system. The project's main objective is to air keep the flare combustion efficiency at maximum level while not populating the atmosphere. Currently, designing the flare's crown using C3d and getting ready set up the final product.

Biography

Jonathan Duqum is currently in his 3rd year at Missouri University of Science and Technology and plans to graduate with a Bachelor’s in Chemical Engineering. For his second semester of his junior year, he has worked on research about increasing the combustion in a flare system. He is also currently working with another project involves identifying deposits when Urea is spayed a diesel truck helping the elimination of the emissions NOx. After graduating, he plans to get his Master’s degree at Missouri S&T.
