Details

Operators of exempt or regulated facilities that transfer or treat hazardous waste must meet the requirements of S5.06 and the waste treatments BREF. These are the initial points for defining ‘appropriate measures’.

New waste installations and new or replacement plant at existing waste installations must use best available techniques (BAT) and meet associated emission limits from the date that they are first permitted.

BAT and associated emission limits are set out in Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2018/1147 on the European IPPC Bureau website.

In all other cases we will work with the operators of existing waste installations to ensure that the BAT conclusions are met in full by August 2022.
