The objective of this project is to enhance an in situ burn (ISB) quantification system previously developed under OSRR Project #1074. The system is designed to provide near real-time quantification of volumes of crude oil being burned thus yielding burn rate and efficiency. A series of small- and large-scale test burns will be conducted to acquire data for algorithms to accurately measure and quantify burning volumes and efficiencies to advance the state of maturity of the technology for commercialization.
