FINAL CALL FOR PARTICIPATION - Thursday 22nd October 2015: ENEP General Assembly side event - Industrial Emissions Directive - Comparative approaches to implementation in the EU Member States
AFITE & ENEP will host this Thursday 22nd October in Paris a high level workshop Industrial Emissions Directive: Comparative approaches to implementation in the EU Member States to look at implementation of the IED Directive ahead of its Mid Term Review in 2016 . Through feedback from Environmental Professionals, industry representatives, along with representatives from the Member States and the EU Institutions the workshop will investigate how these provisions are being implemented in the different Member States. ENEP last focused in on the IED directive in September 2012, when ENEP host a meeting for professionals involved in preparing their industries for the implementation of the new Industrial Emissions Directive that was adopted in Brussels in November 2010. The IED directive seeks to control industrial emissions, through an EU general framework based on integrated permitting based of the latest available technologies and techniques (BATs). Permits need to take account of a plant’s complete environmental performance to avoid pollution being shifted from one medium - such as air, water and land - to another. Priority is given to preventing pollution by intervening at source and ensuring prudent use and management of natural resources. The ENEP side event coincides with the broader drive to combat climate change through reduced emissions in the COP Paris UN negotiations that are due to conclude in November 2015.
