Industrial emissions Directive EPR Guidance on Part A installations
MetadataShow full item record
Chapter II of the industrial emissions Directive applies an integrated environmental approach to the regulation of certain industrial activities. This means that emissions to air, water (including discharges to sewer) and land, plus a range of other environmental effects, must be considered together. Regulators must set permit conditions so as to achieve a high level of protection for the environment as a whole, based on the use ofthe best available techniques (BAT), which balances the costs to the operator against the benefits to the environment. Chapter 3 of this guidance sets out the scope of the industrial emissions Directiveregulation of Part A activities by defining Part A installations. Chapter 4 describes the permitting requirements of the industrial emissions Directive which will be delivered through environmental permits for Part A installations. Chapter 5 describes other industrial emissions Directive requirements relevant to the regulation of installations.
