Local Consultant to develop the comprehensive national inventory of installations in Montenegro (arising from the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) and medium combustion plants (in accordance with 2015/2193 Directive)
home-based and podgorica
Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) Directive 2010/75/EU of the European Parliament and the Council on industrial emissions (the Industrial Emissions Directive or IED) is the main EU instrument regulating pollutant emissions from industrial installations. The IED was adopted on 24 November 2010. It is based on a Commission proposal recasting 7 previously existing directives (including in particular the IPPC Directive) following an extensive review of the policy.
The IED entered into force on 6 January 2011 and had to be transposed by Member States by 7 January 2013. The IED aims to achieve a high level of protection of human health and the environment, by reducing harmful industrial emissions across the EU, in particular through better application of Best Available Techniques (BAT). Around 50,000 installations undertaking the industrial activities listed in Annex I of the IED are required to operate in accordance with a permit (granted by the authorities in the Member States). This permit should contain conditions set in accordance with the principles and provisions of the IED. The integrated approach means that the permits must take into account the whole environmental performance of the plant, covering e.g. emissions to air, water and land, generation of waste, use of raw materials, energy efficiency, noise, prevention of accidents, and restoration of the site upon closure. The permit conditions including emission limit values must be based on the Best Available Techniques (BAT). In order to define BAT and the BAT-associated environmental performance at EU level, the Commission organizes an exchange of information with experts from Member States, industry and environmental organizations. This work is coordinated by the European IPPC Bureau of the Institute for Prospective Technology Studies at the EU Joint Research Centre in Seville (Spain). This process results in BAT Reference Documents (BREFs); the BAT conclusions contained are adopted by the Commission as Implementing Decisions. The IED requires that these BAT conclusions are the reference for setting permit conditions. For certain activities, i.e. large combustion plants, waste incineration and co-incineration plants, solvent using activities and titanium dioxide production, the IED also sets EU wide emission limit values for selected pollutants. The IED contains mandatory requirements on environmental inspections. Member States shall set up a system of environmental inspections and draw up inspection plans accordingly. The IED requires a site visit to take place at least every 1 to 3 years, using risk-based criteria. The IED ensures that the public has a right to participate in the decision-making process, and to be informed of its consequences, by having access to permit applications, permits and the results of the monitoring of releases. In addition, through the European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (E-PRTR). Emission data reported by Member States are made accessible in a public register, which is intended to provide environmental information on major industrial activities.
Government of Montenegro adopted Law on Industrial Emissions in December 2018. It is expected that law will be adopted by Parliament in March 2019. The law will enter into force after parliamentarian adoption and the installations that were granted integrated permits prior to entry into force of this Law shall make their operation compliant within one year from the day of entry into force of this Law, except for installations regulated under legislation on air protection. In parallel, Directive Specific Implementation Plan (DSIP) was prepared and endorsed by line Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism.
The Government of Montenegro plans to develop the Comprehensive national inventory of installations in Montenegro that fall under the provisions of the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) and medium combustion plants in accordance with 2015/2193 Directive in order to properly report to responsible bodies at EU level.
