New Waste Emission Standards for The European Chemical Industry

The Official Journal of the European Union published the Best Available Techniques (BAT) conclusions for Common Waste Water and Waste Gas Treatment/Management Systems in the Chemical Sector. These BAT conclusions address a number of issues relevant for all chemical installations covered by the Industrial Emissions Directive: environmental management systems; waste water management, collection, and treatment; waste gas management and collection; diffuse emissions of volatile organic compounds to air; odour emissions; and noise emissions. BAT conclusions are the technical basis for national authorities in EU countries to set permit conditions for producers in the relevant field and aim at achieving a high level of protection of the environment under economically and technically viable conditions.
