FEAD together with ESWET and CEWEP is pleased to publish a report prepared by Ineris Institute addressing the question of air emissions monitoring, particularly within the IED (Industrial Emissions Directive).
The report focuses on reliability and accuracy at very low concentrations, which has significant implications on the drawing up and review of BREFs (Best available technique REFerence documents) and the setting of new IED-based BATAELs (Best Available Technique Associated Emission Levels). We consider that the monitoring issue must be very seriously taken into account before going further in the Waste-Treatment BREF and Waste Incineration BREF review processes and before official validation of Large Combustion Plants BREF and Reference Report on Monitoring.
Please find our summary note on this important topic here.
