The General Directorate of Environmental Management continues to conduct activities to adapt the Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) approach into the national legislation, regulated under the 1st and 2nd chapters of the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) 2010/75/EU. One of these studies is performing under the Project “Determination of Industrial Emissions Strategy of Turkey in Accordance with Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (DIES)”, mainly focused on the Chemical and Mineral sectors.
Since the DIES Project aims to increase the technical and institutional capacity of the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization, the activities for capacity building were continued by organizing the second of four training programs for the MoEU staff that are delivered in the form of “Training of Trainers” (ToT). At the end of the training program, trainers will act as multipliers to carry out training courses oriented on Ministry specific needs related to the implementation of the IPPC approach and the Industrial Emissions Directive. To be successful trainers and facilitators, participants will need to acquire good methodical competence and personal and social skills, in addition to extensive technical expertise in their subject matter.
The 2nd ToT was held on 19-21 October 2021 at Antalya Susesi Luxury Resort. During the 3-day session, intensive training regarding the BREFs and BAT CLs was given. In the 2nd program, which focuses on the studies for chemical and mineral sectors, subjects such as horizontal and vertical BREFs and BAT Conclusions (BATCs), examples of general binding rules, derogation from BATCs were discussed. You can find the agenda of the 2nd ToT here.

In addition to the training topics, the Ekici Cheese factory located in Antalya OIZ and wastewater treatment plant serving the Antalya OIZ were visited within the scope of the field study on the second day of the training. After the site visits, IPPC compliance and permit provisions for the facilities were discussed with the participants.
