Draft Best Available Techniques (BAT) for Waste Gas Treatment in the Chemical Sector |
This BREF concerns the chemical industry and will cover the treatment of waste gases from a variety of sources from within the chemical industry, in particular by using end-of-pipe techniques. The exact scope of this BREF has not yet been defined.
The drawing up of the WGC BREF will involve:
(*) collecting comprehensive and representative information and data on abatement techniques and emission levels across the whole chemical industry;
(*) collecting information and data from specific products/processes that might require a dedicated approach (e.g. by relying on current BREFs or Member States' legislation);
(*) a thorough analysis of the information and data collected;
(*) the definition of generic BAT and BAT-AELs for emissions to air for the whole chemical industry, while identifying processes requiring further specific consideration.
