The Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) regulates pollutant emissions from industrial installations. It aims to protect humans and the environment by reducing industrial emissions. The European Copper Institute supports the objectives of the IED, and has actively contributed to the development of the Best Available Techniques (BAT) reference document for the nonferrous metals sector. The IED is a success: it has ensured that the European copper industry significantly cut its emissions over the past decade. For example, the emissions of copper to water, and the emissions of dust to air, have halved since 2008. In the context of the evaluation of the IED, the European Copper Institute has issued a position paper where these trends are further documented.
