Flaring is the controlled destruction and/or consumption by fire of a hazardous material. When this process is chosen, it like any other de-inventory process has its advantages and disadvantages.

This course covers and includes live demonstrations of a controlled material burn off in the field through the use of a ground flare, candlestick flare, and a water-break flare.
