In May 2007 Evans Vanodine was awarded a permit under the Pollution Prevention & Control (England & Wales) Regulations.
In order to gain a PPC permit, operators must show they have systematically developed procedures to provide the highest levels of protection to the environment by controlling and preventing pollution, utilising the Best Available Techniques (BAT)
Pollution Prevention & Control Regulations has been implemented to meet the following environmental objectives:-
- Protection of the environment as a whole by preventing or minimising emissions to all media (air, land & water).
- Encourage reduction in materials and energy consumption, and increase in, their recycling and reuse.
- Promote the use of technology to reduce pollution at source.
- Encourage innovation, by leaving significant responsibility for developing satisfactory solutions to environmental issues with industrial operators.
- Reduce the complexity of administration of pollution control issues and provide a 'one-stop shop' for the permitting process to operate. Compliance with PPC Regulations is extremely demanding and requires the applicant company to be committed to reducing pollution and protecting the environment. Our commitment to this is illustrated by the designation by the regulators of our manufacturing plant as a Low Impact Installation.
- Simplify and strengthen the role of the Competent Authorities (regulators).
IPPC was introduced by the European Community (EC) Directive 96/61/EC on Integrated Pollution Prevention & Control. In England and Wales the Directive is implemented by the Pollution Prevention & Control (England and Wales) Regulations 2000, in Scotland it is implemented by the Pollution Prevention & Control (Scotland) Regulations 2000, and the Directive is implemented in Northern Ireland by the Pollution Prevention & Control Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2003.
