The IED Introduction Acknowledgements
Notes to accompany slide 8 Introduction I would like to take opportunity to recognise the efforts that Defra and the Environment Agency have put into consultation on the IED and LCP before that. Those of us in the CEA are grateful for the way that Defra have taken our concerns seriously and have gone to consider efforts to understand and accommodate industry’s particular circumstances. The NERP National Emissions Reduction Plan is a good example. Other examples, in this case the Environment Agency, Janet Collear has gone spend time understanding the significant contrasts between a large utility boiler operating at steady load, comparing to an industrial boiler belonging to a financially challenged owner, in a cramped industrial estate with a fluctuating steam load operating on a number of fuels. I would particularly like to publically thank Richard Vincent, who I am delighted Is able to present our Keynote address, in ensuring that the David of industrial boiler operators is heard amongst the Goliaths of the utilities.
Before we hear from Richard, there are some other people I would like to thank: Firstly all the speakers. The vast majority of our speakers have to deal with the IED as one of many issues on their plate – it is the nature of industrial operations that one has to wear many hats and the IED is one of those hats. Speaking to a number of you in the past week, I know you have been burning the midnight oil to prepare you presentation and fitting this day in with other priorities has been stressful. So if that’s you, thank you very much. I would also like to thank Dr Graham Reed for looking after us here at Imperial We really appreciate your hospitality and thank you to all the students you roped in. I would in particular like to thank Dr David McCaffrey for all his work in making this happen. David has been planning this in his mind for about two years, nudging me from time to time about when we were going to hold this seminar. I think we now have the perfect timing. And of course when seminars are run between three organisations it trebles the complications, but David’s tenacity and attention to detail has got us through all that.
The IED has profound consequences for industrial and utility operators – in time it will turn over a significant amount of the boiler population. The serious consequences of the IED is illustrated by the strong delegate attendance. There is no better person to introduce the IED as our keynote speaker than Richard Vincent, who is Head of Industrial Pollution Control at Defra. Richard, we are delighted you accepted our invitation and would invite you to address this Seminar…………….
