Workshop, 12/3/2004 Banska Bystrica – SLOVAC REPUBLIC “INTEGRATED LICENCE PROCEDURE (Greek case)” Katerina Iakovidou-Anastasiadou Hellenic Ministry for the Environment Physical Planning and Public Works / Division of Industries
Legal changes A frame Law (revision of existing one) for the transposition of the IPPC Directive A common ministerial decision which categorize all the installations in 4 categories (A1, A2, B3, B4) - Central and Local Environmental Authorities (a special refer to the IPPC activities) A common ministerial decision with the new permitting procedure A c.m.d. about the content of the environmental impact assessments
Conditions of the permit (1/2) Take all the preventive measures against pollution, through application of BAT No significant pollution is caused Avoid waste production Use energy efficiently Take the necessary measures to prevent accidents Take the necessary measures to avoid any pollution risk and return the operation to a satisfactory state. Take into account environmental quality standards
Conditions of the permit (2/2) ELVs for pollutants listed in Annex III Use of the BAT Monitoring requirements, measurement methodology, frequency of measurements Measures to conditions other than normal operating conditions - Member States may prescribe certain requirements for certain categories of installations. - M-S take into account, the technical characteristics of the installation, the geographical location and the local environmental conditions.
Parameters for BAT (1/2) reduction of waste use of less hazardous substances recovery and recycling of substances positive industrial experience technological and scientific progress the nature of emissions the time required for implementation
Parameters for BAT (2/2) the consumption of raw materials the energy efficiency the reduction of the impact on the environment and the risk of impacts the prevention of environmental accidents the information published by competent international organisations
The aim of the 7 studies which has been assigned by the Ministry for the Environment To support the national positions during the meetings of the TWGs. To inform the installations about the obligations of the Directive (by Seminars, Workshops, etc) To create a list of the IPPC and the non IPPC installations. To reduce the pollution and improve the pollution measurements of the IPPC and the non IPPC installations. To create a list of measurements to prevent and control the pollution, during and after the process for all industrial sectors.
Subjects of the Studies 1.Energy industries 2. Production and processing of metals 3. Mineral industry 4. Chemical industry 5. Paper/board industries, tanneries and textile industries 6. Waste management 7. Food sector A coordination Study (of the 7 studies)
Sources of information (for the installations) The Environmental Impact Assessments of each examined installation Site visits to the most representative installations The published financial statements and balance sheets of the last 2 years Contacts with the Brunches Industrial Associations
Contents of the studies(1/4) Description of the industrial sector e.g. chemical Production processes (every specific process) Production capacity Pollutant emissions (pollution sources and types of wastes in the process) Water and energy consumption
Contents of the studies (2/4) Implemented Techniques of pollution prevention and reduction at the installations with emphasis in: - process improvement, - substitution of raw materials, - leaks and spills prevention, - cleaning practices modifications, - recycling, recovery and reuse, End-of-pipe techniques applied to manage pollution (air emissions, liquid and solid waste) in Greece and world wide
Contents of the studies(3/4) Particulates and air emissions abatement technologies Liquid waste management technologies Pretreatment and primary treatment systems Solid waste management technologies Synopsis of the implemented pollution abatement techniques per pollutant and sector -end-of-pipe techniques- for air pollutants, liquid waste, solid waste.
Contents of the studies(4/4) Conclusions – proposals for selecting a BAT Proposed BATs for each sector: Materials storage and transferring optimisation Measures to prevent possible fugitives' escape and spills Raw materials/substances loss minimization Water use optimization Energy use optimization Combustion systems efficiency improvement Personnel training
A data sheet (has been completed, for each installation) Raw and secondary materials Products and by-products Handling and storage of materials Source and consumption of water Source and consumption of energy Production processes Pollution prevention and reduction technologies applied
BAT selection criteria Collection from all available sources or publications of information on Clean Technologies and effluent treatment methods Selection of Technologies and methods promising to be suitable for the investigated branches, and preparation of a short-list Preparation of an evaluation sheet for each short-listed technology Proposition of the most suitable BAT, on the basis of the evaluation sheets
