Methodology development for integrated pollution prevention

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference articleScientific


A methodology for applying IPPC directive (Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control, Council directive 96/61/EC) is introduced and demonstrated. For a plant development project this methodology provides a systematic procedure to be followed, assisting to trigger project actions and to utilise detailed process data. The methodology provides a framework to view air and water emission, and solid waste as a whole, being inherently connected to each other. Also economical, environmental and technical aspects are taken under simultaneous evaluation during a plant development project. This methodology provides capabilities for true knowledge integration as an information system. The successful fit of a pilot project to the methodology encourages to utilise and develop the methodology further.
