4/5. Session One: and WI DirectiveTool 1 (Implementation of IPPC Directive)


Ippc explanation of general approach
IPPC: Explanation of general approach and WI Directive

  • Restructuring of questionnaire

  • Use of pre-filled answers and standardised answers

  • Guidance and validation rules


Ippc explanation of general approach1
IPPC: Explanation of general approach and WI Directive

Restructuring of questionnaire:

  • Thematic regrouping based on LDK analysis of the previous reporting period (2003-2005) to improve the logics of the questionnaire’s structure.

  • 5(6) major themes:

    • General description

    • Permit application and determination process

    • Access to information, public participation and transboundary cooperation

    • Compliance and enforcement

    • Views of Member States

    • Coverage of activities and installations (not in this presentation)

      Based on the questionnaire’s template, this will be incorporated into the tool.

  • Content of questionnaire kept

  • Tool available in all EU languages


Ippc use of pre filled answers and standardised answers
IPPC: Use of pre-filled answers and standardised answers and WI Directive

  • Pre-filled answers :

    • Based on answers from previous reporting periods some questions will have pre-filled answers

    • Text in English

    • MS will have the possibility to amend these answers if necessary.

    • Pre-filled answers will generally be the summaries made by LDK

    • General Binding Rules: information gathered in the GBR project will also be used to define pre-filled answers.


Ippc use of pre filled answers and standardised answers1
IPPC: Use of pre-filled answers and standardised answers and WI Directive

  • Standardised answers:

    • If possible standardised answers are defined instead of open text boxes.

    • Simplest form of standardised answer: YES/NO

    • Sources to determine standardised answers:

      • Analysis of implementation reports (2003-2005) by LDK (2007)

      • IPPC expert judgement

      • Suggestions from MS as part of the project

    • MS can select the relevant answer(s) through

      • Option box: MS can select one (and only one) selection from a number of options. For example:

      • Tick box: MS can make multiple selections from a number of options. For example:

ORIGINAL QUESTION

1.1. Have any significant changes been made since the last reporting period (2003-2005) to national or sub-national legislation and to the permitting system(s) that implement Directive 96/61/EC? If so, describe these changes and the reasons for them, and provide references to new legislation.

Ippc guidance and validation rules
IPPC: Guidance and validation rules Restructuring

  • Guidance:

    • Where appropriate, guidance is provided by means of additional information or by allowing only a certain data type as answer.

    • Questions containing conditional clauses are marked such as ‘If available’ or ‘If known’ are marked as ‘Optional’

    • Guidance document will be circulated to Member States to support and guide them for filling the electronic questionnaire

  • Validation rules:

    • IT tools to see if the correct type of answer is given:

    • For example:

      • Option box: only one answer can be selected

      • Number box: only numbers are allowed

      • Validation of sum of numbers given (f.e. numbers of installations)


It functionality
IT Functionality Restructuring

Built on EEA Reportnet

  • Allows for upload / import of XML files for responses

  • Use of Web Forms

  • Validation and Quality Assurance Checks

  • Export (via Transformations) to HTML and other formats


6/7. Session Two: RestructuringTool 2 (ELV and BAT Reporting


Elv and bat selection of 2 sectors lcp and chlor alkali
ELV and BAT: Selection of 2 sectors (LCP and Chlor-alkali) Restructuring

  • LCP: electricity generation sector (coal, lignite and liquid fuels)

    Main reasons for selecting this sector:

    • Upcoming review of the LCPBREF

    • Highest emissions of key air pollutants

    • Inventory under LCP Directive: no information on ELVs or on techniques applied

    • Because of the large number of installations, focus on

      • specific sector: electricity generation

      • specific type of fuels: coal, lignite and liquid (no gas, no gas turbines)

      • 6 largest NOx emitters for each of the following capacity categories:

        • 50-100 MWth

        • 100-300 MWth

        • > 300 MWth


Elv and bat selection of 2 sectors lcp and chlor alkali1
ELV and BAT: Selection of 2 sectors (LCP and Chlor-alkali) Restructuring

  • LCP: electricity generation sector (coal, lignite and liquid fuels)

    Focus of permit information gathering:

    • Combustion activity(not fuel storage, fuel handling, pre-treatment of the fuels,….)

    • Emissions to air:

      • NOx, SO2, CO, dust and Hg (for coal/lignite fired plants)

    • Emissions to water (in case of water emissions from flue gas treatment)

      • Suspended solids, COD, Nitrogen compounds, sulphate, sulphite, sulphide and Hg (for coal/lignite fired plants)

    • Information on techniques applied

      • Possibility to select techniques in a tick box (based on BREF LCP)


Elv and bat selection of 2 sectors lcp and chlor alkali2
ELV and BAT: Selection of 2 sectors (LCP and Chlor-alkali) Restructuring

  • Chlor-Alkali:

    Main reasons for selecting this sector:

    • Upcoming review of the Chlor-AlkaliBREF

    • Follow-up of Commission initiative launched on implementation assessment in this sector (questions to the IEG)

    • Good spread of the industry throughout the EU but limited number of installations (+/- 80 installations in 20 MS)

      • Therefore, information on all the installations will be gathered

    • Conversion programme for Mercury cells

      • Phase-out not yet completed in several installations

      • ELVs in the transition period?


Elv and bat selection of 2 sectors lcp and chlor alkali3
ELV and BAT: Selection of 2 sectors (LCP and Chlor-alkali) Restructuring

  • Chlor-alkali

    Focus of permit information gathering:

    • Conversion of mercury cells

    • Emissions to air:

      • Chlorine

      • Hg and compounds (for Mercury cells)

    • Emissions to water

      • Chlorate, Bromate (for Membrane cells)

      • Hg and compounds (for Mercury cells)

    • At this stage, no specific questions on the techniques applied – MS views welcome.

Elv and bat reporting tool lcp2
ELV and BAT reporting tool: LCP Restructuring

Definition of “Combustion plant”:

A "combustion plant" is in principle to be understood as a combination of (one or more) technical units in which fuels are combusted and which are sharing a common stack. It is assumed that the emission limit values and techniques to prevent/reduce emissions are applied at the plant level. If this would not be the case, this should be indicated and reporting can then be done at a more aggregate/disaggregate level, but the configuration of the "plant" reported should be provided (number of units, stacks, rated thermal input).
