  • Air pollution from electricity-generating large combustion plants

    The study was initiated in the context of the review of the Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) Directive. This report presents the results of a study that assesses the theoretical potential to reduce air emissions of SO2 and NOX that might have occurred had the best available techniques (BAT) and associated emission levels (AELs), as described in the large combustion plant ...

  • Reducing air pollution from electricity-generating large combustion plants in the European Union

    Background In 2008, the European Environment Agency (EEA) published a first assessment of the theoretical potential to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOX) and sulphur dioxide (SO2) from electricitygenerating large combustion plants (LCPs) (EEA, 2008). That earlier study showed that improving the environmental performance of existing LCPs by applying best available techniques ...

  • Methylmercury in mosquitoes around a large coal‐fired power plant in Central Ohio

    Emissions from coal‐fired power plants are the major anthropogenic source of mercury (Hg) in the environment. Because emitted Hg can be deposited near the source, concerns arise about the effects of coal‐burning facilities on levels of toxic methylmercury (MeHg) in biota near such sources. We investigated the potential impact of a large Hg‐emitting (450 kg in 2005) coal‐fired power station in ...

  • Revising IPPC: Incremental Change Rather than a Radical Overhaul of EU Industrial Emissions Policy

    Abstract: The European Commission has published a proposal to revise the IPPC Directive (1996/61, codified as 2008/1). The proposal also incorporates six 'sectoral' industrial emissions Directives as annexes: large combustion plants (2001/80); waste incineration (2000/76); solvent emissions (1999/13); and titanium dioxide (78/176, 82/883 and 92/112). The proposal would only extend the scope of ...


  • Communication to the Council and the European Parliament on a Community Strategy to Combat Acidification

    On 12th March 1997, the European Commission adopted a proposal from the Environment Commissioner Ritt Bjerregaard on a European Union strategy to combat acidification. The strategy will, by 2010, reduce significantly the extent of the areas in the European Union where the tolerance of sensitive ecosystems to acidity is exceeded. Main elements of the strategy include establishment of national ...

  • New EU industrial emissions legislation

    Proposal for the revision of industrial emissions legislation in the EU (Questions & Answers) The Commission's proposal focuses on four key problems identified during a two-year review process when data was collected through an extensive programme with ten studies and continuous consultation with stakeholders. Firstly, the Commission proposes to overhaul seven existing pieces of legislation on ...

  • Costs and health benefits of reducing emissions from power stations in Europe

    Current levels of emissions of sulphur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) from power plants generate very significant health and environmental damage across Europe. This study demonstrates that by applying up-to-date emission control technologies, these emissions could come down drastically. By estimating the costs and health benefits of further emission reductions, this study highlights the ...

  • Selection of Particulate Monitors

    The installation and operation of continuous particulate emission monitors in industrial processes has become well developed and common practice in industrial stacks and ducts over the past 30 years reflecting regulatory monitoring requirements. It supports requirements originating from LAPPC (Local Air Pollution Prevention and Control), IPPC (Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control), WID ...
