Industrial Emission, Integrated Pollution Control and Waste Licences
Environmental Efficiency provide specialist advice on applying for and complying with Environmental Licences issued by the EPA, namely IPC, IED and Waste Licences. Industrial and Waste facilities may need a licence depending on the type, nature and scale of the activities they carry out. For example a company that makes or uses greater than 10 tonnes of organic solvent per annum would need an IPC Licence. The purpose of such a licence is to ensure the proper management and control of environmental emissions originating from industrial/waste facilities. IPC and IED Licences are governed by the EPA Act, whilst Waste Licences are governed by the Waste Management Act.
Environmental Efficiency can advise on and assist with the following areas relating to licence applications and compliance:
- Whether an IPC/IED/Waste Licence is required or not.
- Reconfiguring facility operations to ensure a licence is not required (reducing costs), whilst at the same time maintaining compliance with relevant legislation.
- Pre-application consultation with the EPA and the scoping of the licence application/licence.
- Collation, completion and submission of the licence application form.
- Completion of necessary assessments needed to support a licence application (e.g. EIA, Appropriate Assessment, Air Dispersion Modelling, Noise Prediction Modelling)
- Ensuring compliance with licence conditions, once a licence has been issued (e.g. compliance monitoring, Annual Environmental Reports, ELRA’s, CRAMP’s)
