Regulatory References

Emission control is regulated by:

  • by current environmental legislation, and in particular by Legislative Decree 152/2006, also known as the Consolidated Environmental Act, and its subsequent amendments and additions;
  • by Executive Resolution No. 353-28635/2018 dated 28/11/2018, a review procedure valid as a TRM’s renewal of its Integrated Environmental Authorisation (IEA), issued by the Metropolitan City of Turin.

Legislative Decree 152/06 establishes the guidelines for environmental protection and in particular states that “The authorisation establishes, regarding the monitoring of emissions for which the operator is responsible, the carrying out of periodic measurements based on periodic methods or the use of monitoring systems based on continuous methods. The operator carries out the monitoring for which it is responsible […] and makes the results available to the competent authority for control according to the method indicated in Annex VI to Part Five of this Decree and in the authorisation […]”[1].

In addition to the application of the provisions of Legislative Decree 152/06, it is therefore necessary to refer to Authorization, which specifically sets out the parameters to sample, the sampling methods (continuous and periodic), the emission limits and the requirements for making the results available to the competent authorities (the Metropolitan City of Turin and ARPA).

The IPPC Permit introduces, in addition to the measurements provided for by the regulations and compared to the limits imposed (the so-called “fiscal” measurements) a series of exploratory measurements.

The current Authorization also implements the European Commission’s Implementing Decision (EU) No. 2019/2010, which establishes Best Available Techniques (BAT) conclusions for waste incineration, pursuant to Directive 2010/75/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council.
