Defra publishes response to the consultation "Improving Air Quality: reducing emissions from medium combustion plants and generators"

Defra has published its summary of responses to the consultation on reducing emissions from Medium Combustion Plants and Generators, which ran between 16 November 2016 and 8 February 2017.

The Medium Combustion Plant Directive (MCPD) regulates the emissions of SO2, NOx, and dust (and lays down rules for monitoring of CO) and seeks to bridge the gap between larger (>50 MWth) plants that are regulated under the IED, and the smaller appliances (<1 MWth).

A copy of the summary document is available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/improving-air-quality-reducing-emissions-from-medium-combustion-plants-and-generators

There will be stakeholder workshops in July and August, and the MCPD will be implemented into law in the Autumn.
