DICKINSONNorth Dakota  Steffes is proud to announce their Variable Orifice Flare has been recognized by the North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality ‘s (DEQ) High Efficiency Program for 99.0% destruction removal efficiency (DRE) certification. 

The High Efficiency Program assesses air pollution control devices with its main goal to reduce fugitive emissions, increase control efficiency, and improve North Dakota’s air quality. Operators are required to work with the state to meet application requirements and must be approved before they can claim 99.0% DRE when utilizing the Steffes Variable Orifice flare. For more information visit North Dakota DEQ’s website.   

Steffes has completed the rigorous emission testing of the Variable Orifice Flare and has proven its destruction removal efficiency of greater than 99.0% DRE.  

We’ve worked closely with the Air Quality division of DEQ and operators in North Dakota to secure this milestone program,” said Lane Brengle, Steffes Product Manager – Flares & Gas Management. “As states and operators look for ways to demonstrate impact of ESG in the industry, North Dakota’s program combined with Steffes’ proven results could be a valuable building block for future corporate and state ESG programs. We welcome the opportunity to help any way we can.”
