Controlled flaring at Mossmorran Fife Ethylene Plant

09 July 2019

Article: 53/2705

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) has announced that planned controlled flaring at the Mossmorran Fife Ethylene Plant started on 4 July 2019. Because of community concerns, SEPA has deployed monitoring equipment to capture air quality data once flaring begins so that local impacts are assessed, while SEPA officers will be on site during the controlled flaring to make an initial assessment of noise and other impacts.

SEPA will provide an update on the initial findings of the air quality monitoring once data has been collated and analysed.
