TSAP

The Thematic Strategy for Air Pollution has been developed to achieve the agreed upon overall EU health and environment objectives in the least costly manner. The plan indicates that Emission Limit Values (ELV) should not be uniform across the EU, but determined according to their impact. As a consequence, overly stringent EU-wide binding limits in the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) proposal are in conflict with this approach of EU-wide optimisation.
