  • The LCP Directive (2001/80/EC) on the limitation of emissions of certain pollutants into the air from large combustion plants.
  • Directive 200/76/EC on the incineration of waste.
  • Directive 1999/13/EC on the limitation of volatile organic compounds due to the use of organic solvents in certain activities and installations).
  • Three different directives relating to the production of titanium dioxide: (i) Council Directive 78/176/EEC; (ii) Council Directive 82/883/EEC; and (iii) Council Directive 92/112/EEC.

The IED is based on several subjects and applications, in particular (1) an integrated approach, (2) use of best available techniques, (3) flexibility, (4) inspections and (5) public participation.
