Flare Testing regulations  Meet Flare Testing Regulations

Our certified emissions testing technicians in North Dakota (and beyond) provide EPA M-22 Flare Testing for producers, as well as full service emissions testing for water, soil, oil and gas testing.

EPA M-22 Flare Testing is a simple procedure that determines the total time an industrial activity causes visible emissions. Fugitive emissions are non-stack emissions that escape during material transfer, from buildings that contain the process, or directly from process equipment. Some examples include dust from unpaved roads; dust from grinding, crushing and sandblasting operations; and dry material loading or unloading.

Some emission standards require that you minimize any visible emissions from your process. EPA M-22 Flare Testing is one method used to make sure the process and any emission control equipment are operating properly and are not generating excess emissions.

EPA M-22 Flare Testing can also be used for visible emissions from stationary sources such as smoke stacks if there is such a requirement in the applicable emission standards.


Methane Icon SMALLER EPA Section 114 Request

California Air Resources Board (CARB) released compliance offset protocols, most notably is the methane emissions from mining (MMC). The MMC is part of the state’s maturing carbon market and intended to provide an alternate compliance option to meet their greenhouse gas (GHG) emission budgets on an annual basis. The MMC proposal sets parameters and criteria to measure and quantify reductions achieved by registered mine methane capture projects to enable them to generate validated offset credits for sale into the marketplace.
The MMC, once finalized, will be the fifth eligible offset type authorized to participate in the California market (existing protocols exist for forestry, livestock and ozone-depleting substances) and projects located throughout the U.S. will be eligible to participate.
