According to a recent analysis by the World Bank, gas flaring is not only increasing but has also hit the highest level in a decade.
In chemical factories, oil refineries, oil wells, rigs and landfills, gaseous waste products and sometimes even non-waste gases produced are routed to an elevated vertical chimney called a gas flare and burnt off at its tip. This is called gas flaring.
GGFR is a global body of governments, oil companies and institutions seeking to monitor gas flaring and work on ways to reduce flaring and waste.
The coalition aims to attain zero flaring by 2030.
