Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland

Consultation on proposals for transposing into Scottish legislation Directive EU 2015/2193 on Medium Combustion Plants.

Medium combustion plants (MCPs) are used to generate heat for large buildings (e.g. offices, hotels, hospitals, prisons) and industrial processes, as well as for power generation.

Who will the Regulations Affect?

Affects operators of combustion plants that are between large combustion plants (> 50 MW) covered by the Industrial Emissions Directive and smaller appliances (< 1 MW) covered by the Ecodesign Directive.

What are the main provisions of the new Regulations?

Many of the Directive requirements are fixed. However there are some flexibilities for transposing into domestic legislation and it is these that the consultation focuses on.

The consultation is also seeking views on how to control nitrogen dioxide emissions from high emitting diesel generators.

Consultation closes 10 March 2017
