The Pollution Prevention and Control Regulations 2014

11 December 2014

Permitting - Northern Ireland

The Pollution Prevention and Control (Industrial Emissions) (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2014 require that cost-benefit analysis is undertaken of cogeneration or waste heat recovery. These analyses will be required where applications or variations are made for permits concerning energy producing installations with an aggregated net rated thermal input over 20MW. If the analysis finds the measures cost-effective, permits will only be granted with conditions requiring they are installed.

The regulations add an additional Part C permitted activity: burning fuel(s) in a combination of boilers, furnaces, turbines or compression ignition engines on a single site where the aggregated net rated thermal input is more than 20MW but less than 50MW.
