FuelsEurope position paper on the revision of the Industrial Emissions Directive

Posted on 06/07/2022 in Position Paper

FuelsEurope supports the European Green Deal objectives to review EU measures to address pollution from large agro-industrial installations whilst also ensuring consistency with other related policies. As such, we continue to support the three underlying principles of the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) that should prevail throughout the revision process:

1. A permitting process which is based on BAT conclusions, resulting from thorough data collection practices, which enables the derivation of meaningful BAT-associated emissions levels;

2. An integrated approach aiming to protect the environment as a whole (e.g. addressing cross-media effects);

3. Consideration of the local environmental conditions and the technical characteristics of the installation(s) concerned.
