The European Commission Implementing Decision establishing the best available techniques (BAT) conclusion for the slaughterhouses, animal by-products and/or edible co-products industries has been made public. The BREF document was under review, and the latest draft was published in March 2023. The final text of the BREF has not been published to date.
On December 18, 2023, the Official Journal of the European Union published the Commission Implementing Decision of December 11, 2023, establishing conclusions on the Best Available Techniques (BAT) under Directive 2010/75/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council on industrial emissions, for slaughterhouses, animal by-products and/or edible co-products industries. This directive is very interesting because it brings the second panaeuropean odour limit after the one published in 2018 for Waste Treatment. These are some key points on this new regulation, regarding odours.
