Draft 1 of Waste Treatment BREF
The JRC have published the first draft of the revised Best Available Techniques (BAT) Reference Document for Waste Treatment (WT BREF). This covers both composting and Anaerobic digestion along with other waste treatments.
This is an EU wide document and once released, the environmental regulators (EA, SEPA, NRW, NIEA) will be enforcing the BAT conclusions set out in the new Waste Treatment BREF. REA were part of the technical working group that was involved with providing information to inform the review.
The full document can be found HERE.
Of particular relevance is Chapter 4 (p361-502) on Biological Treatment and the BAT conclusions in Chapter 6.3 (p908-911).
REA will be providing feedback on this to the technical working group and welcome any comments from members. Please forward comments to Jeremy by 19th February 2016.
