Description:In June 1998, the Clean Air Strategic Alliance (CASA) recommended to Albertas Energy and Utilities Board (EUB) a 25 percent reduction on volumes flared by 2001 and stringent performance standards for the remaining flares in Alberta. CASAs recommendations are incorporated in the EUBs July 1999 Flaring Guide. A 25 percent reduction in flaring volumes would reduce carbon dioxide emissions by an estimated 1.25 megatonnes of CO 2 - a 0.7 percent decrease in Alberta emissions.
