Atmospheric Pollutants Emission Reductions Directive

Atmospheric Pollutants Directive, Annex I - Annual Emission Reporting

This list contains the Annex I pollutants that European Union Member States (MS) must measure and report on as part of their national emission reporting requirements. Table A lists the required annual reporting requirements; Table B lists the optional annual reporting requirements; Table C lists required two- and four-year reporting requirements. The National Emission Ceilings Directive 2016/2284/EU establishes emission reduction commitments for all EU MS.

Industrial Emissions Directive

IPPC, Annexes V, VI, VIII - Provisions relating to industrial plants

This list contains emission limit values for polluting substances in waste gases and waste water, assigned according to facility type (i.e., combustion plants (Annex V), waste incineration/co-incineration plants (Annex VI), and installations producing titanium dioxide (Annex VIII)), under Directive 2010/75/EU on Industrial Emissions (Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control - IPPC). For this list, if a substance presents 2 values in the ''Average sampling duration'' field, these indicate minimum and maximum average sampling period.
