Details

Technical guidance for waste incineration processes regulated under the integrated process control (IPC) regime was issued by the Environment Agency in 1996 (Environment Agency 1996). This guidance now requires revision to address developments in technology and new considerations brought about by new legislation, notably the change from the IPC regime to the Pollution Prevention and Control (PPC) and the recent EC Directive on the incineration of waste (EC 2000). This study was commissioned to supplement and update current information on best available techniques (BAT) contained within existing guidance in order to assist with the development of future guidance.
