IED BAT BREFs wood treatment, textile coating

The EU has announced that work underway to update the 2006 BAT BREF for wood treatment will be extended to include not only preservative chemicals, but also application of other protective treatments including flame retardants. Separately, launch of work on a BAT BREF for textile coating is being proposed. BAT BREFs are official EU documents, elaborated after stake holder and Member State consultation, which define Best Available Technologies for different sectors of activity, under the IED Industrial Emissions Directive 2010/75/EU (previously the IPPC Directive).

Implementation of BAT BREF specifications becomes obligatory for all industrial sites concerned in Europe when a BAT BREF is officially adopted.
