Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) is a regulatory system that employs an integrated approach to control the environmental impact to air, land and water of emissions arising from industrial activities. It involves determining the appropriate controls for industry to protect the environment through a single permitting process.
By using an integrated approach, it avoids end of pipe technologies, and instead encourages the implementation of preventative measures. For example waste minimisation by alteration of processes within the operation could be used to prevent waste that may otherwise be created, prevention is better than cure etc etc.
splits facilities in to two primary groups. Part A and Part B. Part A is
regulated by the Environment Agency, Part B by local authorities.
IPPC has now been superseded by the Environmental Permitting (EP), and such clients wishing to modify their existing IPPC Permit may wish to move over to EP, however it possible to make certain alterations to you IPPC permit without major overhaul.
