Project Background

The largest industrial installations account for a considerable share of total emissions of key atmospheric pollutants, and have other important impacts, including emissions into water and soil, generation of waste and the use of energy. The Industrial Emissions Directive 2010/75/EU (IED) sets the main principles for permitting and control of installations based on an integrated approach and on best available techniques (BAT). The Directive replaces seven existing Directives relating to industrial installations and stipulates binding requirements for the operation of industrial installations which are stricter than previously applicable under EU legislation.


With the new project, the Beneficiary Country clearly demonstrates its willingness to legally implement the European environmental standards for industrial installations.
