Yesterday’s meeting for Environment ministers of the European Union

When the ministers meet yesterday they handled the issue about the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED). The idea is to put seven other directives together in one directive, the IED. One of the other directives involved is the IPPC directive, Integrated Pollution Prevention Directive and that one haven’t been that easy to supervise for the regional or local authority. I wonder if the ministers are at all aware of the implications of the change will have for the authorities that are in charge of supervision? This time I hope the integration of the directives in one will be in favour for the supervision, but I haven’t done an elaboration on that. The Swedish position by the minister will be that this can be taken for the parts which deals with ground, best available technique BAT and for big incineration energy plants. Hopefully, the change will make the supervision of the directive easier and at least not more difficult than it already are.....
