MCPD – what does it mean for you?
The Medium Combustion Plant Directive (MCPD) is a European directive which sets out the rules for the emissions of Sulphur dioxide (SO 2), Nitrogen oxides (NO x) and dust particulates in the air. These pollutants not only have a negative impact on our environment, but are also very dangerous to your health!
The directive was designed to bridge the gap at EU level between large combustion plant (>50MWth) covered by the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) and smaller appliances (heaters and boilers <1 MWth) covered by the Ecodesign Directive.
For owners of medium combustion plant, compliance with the MCPD involves meeting emission limit values (ELV’s), regular monitoring, and reporting. It also includes requirements for permitting inspections and adopting best available techniques to minimize environmental impact.
For more information, full details can be found here.
Emission Limits: Plants must adhere to specific limits on pollutants released during combustion.
Registration Requirements: Operators need to register their medium combustion plants with relevant authorities.
Compliance Obligations: Operators are responsible for ensuring their plants comply with environmental standards.
Monitoring and Reporting: Regular monitoring of emissions and reporting to authorities is required to track compliance.
Implementation of Best Practices: Encourages the use of best available techniques to minimize environmental impact.
