Emissions legislation

Interface between the Clean Air Act (CAA) and Pollution Prevention and Control (PPC)

Government guidance indicates that any exemptions under the Clean Air Act 1993 for small-scale incinerators or combustion plant burning waste material do not apply if the activity comes under Pollution Prevention Control (PPC) regulation.

The interface between CAA and PPC is set out in the General Guidance Manual for local authority pollution control: Annex XVIII in the general guidance manual on the Environmental Permitting Regulations (England and Wales).

Waste incineration guidance

Defra have published guidance relating to the application of the Waste Incineration Directive (WID). The guidance also explains which fuels are not exempt from the waste incineration directive and therefore any industrial combustion plant operator must adhere to WID.

The list of industrial or trade premises that have been excluded from a smoke control area is available to download below -
