Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (污染综合防治)


Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (污染综合防治)

1 April 2011

Pollution and prevention of pollution from industrial sources is a central field of European and German environmental policy. This presentation of Alexander Neubauer, Coordinator European Research and Senior Fellow at Ecologic Institute, introduced the basic terms, concepts and instruments that European and German industry-related environmental policy employs.

The presentation focused on the concept and the main instruments of the IPPC Directive (2008/1/EC) and the Directive on Industrial Emissions (2010/75/EU), which will replace the IPPC Directive. The main innovation of the IPPC Directive is to require an integrated permit based on Best Available Techniques (BAT) for certain types of industrial installations.  The Best Available Techniques Reference Documents (BREFs) are of utmost importance in this respect. They contain highly relevant informtion, e.g. on emissions or consumption levels associated with Best Available Techniques for the respective installation types. The BREFs are the result of an exchange of information between experts from EU Member States  (at the European level). They are highly important sources of information for the relevant authorities in the Member States.
