New BAT standards for waste management plants

The European Union has published Implementing Decision 2018/1147, which updates the Best Available Technique (BAT) conclusions for certain large waste management plants.  These BAT standards apply to the waste treatment facilities that require an Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) permit, such as certain sites processing or storing hazardous waste.

The new standards define the expected environmental performance of such plants – for instance with regard to emissions to air, noise and vibration emissions, emissions to water, accident prevention, and resource efficiency.

Existing waste management plants have four years to comply with the new standards.
