TB 01/12 Impact of the Industrial Emissions Directive

On 17th December 2010, the European Commission (EC) published the Industrial Emissions Directive 2010/75/EU (IED).

This Directive is the basis of a common system of environmental operating permits and supervision by the competent authorities for industrial installations where environmental impacts are considered in an integrated, holistic manner.

EIGA Working Group 5 has produced this Bulletin to provide information to plant managers, directors, technical directors and environmental specialists in EIGA member companies on the applicability of the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) to industrial gases processes and on the changes introduced in the IED.
