New EU Environmental Standards for Large Combustion Plants

EU Member States have recently approved new standards on resources and emissions which will help national authorities to lower the environmental impact of around 3 500 large combustion plants. The new specifications were developed through an inclusive, transparent and evidence-based process involving Member States, industry and environmental non-governmental organisations. The specifications set, for the first time at the EU level, limits for the emissions to air of mercury, hydrogen chloride and hydrogen fluoride from the combustion of solid fuels in LCPs. They also tighten the existing emission limits for pollutants including sulphur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx).
