E-PRTR: Point of view and questions of the extractive sector about the Guidance Document

FORTEA + MRW: DGRNE + ICEDD


European pollutant release and transfer register

European Pollutant Emission Register familiar to cement and lime producers but new to quarries

2007 first year of monitoring for quarries

First reporting: January 2008

Collaboration Walloon Region Authorities with FORTEA to clarify some items related to PRTR declaration

European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register

Background

Quarry specific issues

Area effectively under extractive operations

E-PRTR Annex I includes at Opencast mining and quarrying where the surface of the area under extractive operations equals 25 ha.

Guidance document clarify this surface

Release to air water and land

Release to air, water and land

  • No land released known

Background

Quarry specific issues

Next actions

  • How to monitor releases into air?

E-PRTR FORTEA + MRW:DGRNE + ICEDD


Release to air

Release to air

  • Method suggested:

    • Measurement if single point of emission

    • Calculation for diffuse emissions (majority of case)

      • Process description with emissions sources

Background

Quarry specific issues

Next actions

E-PRTR FORTEA + MRW:DGRNE + ICEDD


Release to air1

Release to air

  • Emission = Activity Data * Emission Factor * Attenuation factor (E=AD*EF*AF)

Background

  • E= emission to air to report

  • AD = activity data measures the activity of the facility e.g.

    • For PM10, quantity of product processed per year

    • For other pollutant: annual fuel consumption or annual working time

  • EF = emission factors as listed in approved reference list

  • AD = attenuation factor as listed in approved reference list e.g.

    • Use of water spray during production decrease the amount of PM10 emitted.

Release to air2

Sources: engines (dumper, loader), heating device, ...

Use EF given by the constructor in g/working hour or g/l of fuel

Release to air

Background

Quarry specific issues

Source: process.

Use EF in g/t produced e.g. AP42 from US EPA or other approved reference

Next actions

E-PRTR FORTEA + MRW:DGRNE + ICEDD


Release to water

Release to water

  • Method suggested:

    • Sampling of releases of waste water and analysis of pollutants content. Compute annual load by multiplying analysis results by annual flow.

      • Describe hydro-geological conditions and water flows to qualify dewatering outlet water

E prtr for quarries in a nutshell

E-PRTR for Quarries in a nutshell

  • Producer propose a technical file containing:

    • Site description with specification of the area under effective exploitation and operators

    • Facility description including flow-sheet and describing air emissions sources

    • Calculations principles: description of AD, EF and AF

    • Hydro geological scheme with water inlet and oulet releases description

    • Water pollutant sampling plan and annual flow measurement

    • List of off-site transfer wastes

Background

Quarry specific issues

  • Technical file submitted to competent authority for approval

Next actions

Work programme

Work programme

  • Complete guidance to the Guidance Document with Regions Administrations:

    • Acceptance of principles.

    • Choice of EF and AF for PM10 and other air pollutant

    • Diffusion of the document through FORTEA

    • Workshop with authorities and producers

  • Review of the document for 2009 declaration
