Many organisations require EPA licences or permits from local authorities. The requirement is usually triggered by the threshold for some defined activity being exceeded.  The permit or licence application will detail environmental conditions to be applied such as regular noise monitoring, testing of bunds and tanks and annual fees payable to the authority.

Obtaining such a document will take time and money, further resources will be expended in complying with the conditions.  It therefore makes sense to explore whether the need for such a document can be legally avoided. Often, changes to processes, batch sizes or the use of alternative materials can bring an organisation below the threshold for requiring a licence or permit.  Environmental Efficiency has significant experience in this area and can help companies either get below the threshold or apply for the permit or licence. Therefore, whilst Environmental Efficiency can help to make the application in a cost effective manner, we would first suggest that we work with you to determine whether in fact you need a licence or a permit in the first place.

IPPC License

An IPPC license or an IPPC stands for Integrated Pollution Prevention Control and was introduced by the EPA Act in 1992. Environmental Efficiency are experts in IPPC licensing, with the main aim of this minimise the overall emissions to water, air and land.

If after review, you still need a licence or permit application, then Environmental Efficiency can undertake all the required work to make the application successful and help minimise the burden of compliance.
