Revision of the BREF under the Industrial Emissions Directive
The Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) is a new directive recasting 7 past directives, including the IPPC Directive.
With the new IED, the Non-Ferrous Metals (NFM) BREF, which contains the chapter on ferro-alloys and silicon manufacturing, comes within the new legislative framework. This means that all BREFs under review require their BAT conclusions to be adopted under the IED.
In the spring of 2011, the Commission restarted its work on revising the NFM BREF notes, with December 2012 as the general deadline.
The BAT conclusions for the non-ferrous metals industries have been published in June 2016 in the Official Journal of the European Union as Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2016/1032. The document in all official languages can be found in the following link:
Here below the full NFM BREF and the BAT conclusions as published in June 2016.
