taken 9 years ago, 3 km from Cowdenbeath, Fife, Great Britain

Flaring, Mossmorran
Flaring, Mossmorran
The flare stack at the Fife Ethylene Plant at Mossmorran. Sometimes it is necessary to flush gases from the works and these flammable gases are disposed of through flaring. The hydrocarbons are mixed with steam to reduce the noise which is still very loud.
(Ethylene is known in schools by its IUPAC name - ethene)
