Several EU directives and regulations affects our VOC purification units.
Here is an introduction to some of the most common EU directives. You can also click through the links in the text to read more.
The product of MIAB can help you to meet the IED directive and related BAT requirements.
Industrial Emissions Directive (IED), 2010/75/EU, is a tightening of the requirements to apply the Best Available Techniques (BAT) and to report emissions of pollutants compared with the old directive, IPPC. The IED-Directive is implemented in Swedish law through the Industrial Emissions Regulation, SFS 2013:250.
So-called BAT-conclusions with emission values becomes binding requirements to follow for IED activities. Which activities that are IED activities are controlled by the Environmental Testing Regulation SFS 2013:251, there IED-activities have “i-“ in the activity code. BAT-conclusions shall be used as reference for permits, directly after they have been announced, without any four-year transition period. IED information is available on the website of the European IPPC Bureau.
Our suppliers and requirements for substances in products
We do follow-ups with our suppliers of e.g. electrical equipment and stainless steel, ensuring that our VOC purification units follows the standards we are affected by for substances in products; in REACH, RoHS et.al.
In the REACH- regulation, EG nr 1907/2006 we are affected e.g. of the requirements on knowledge of the substances in articles in our VOC purification units and the packaging. The requirements are among others in the Candidate List, the SCIP Data base and XVII. The Candidate List are updated approximately every six months by ECHA, the European Chemicals Agency.
RoHS II- Directive and CE marking
In the RoHS II- directive (2011/65/EU) there are rules for certain hazardous chemicals in electrical and electronic equipment. RoHS II- directive is implemented in Swedish law among other by the regulation of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment, SFS 2012:861. Information about RoHS II and connecting CE marking can be found on ec.europa.eu. We are affected by the requirement of knowledge of any of the substances in the electronics we use in our VOC abatement units.
Biocidal treated articles
The Biocide Regulation, EG No 528/2012 affects us about the demand of knowledge if any of the materials in our VOC abatement units, or the packaging, are treated by a biocidal treated article. Articles that are treated with biocidal products contain substances that can be dangerous or toxic to humans and the environment, see further information on echa.europa.eu.
The POPs Regulation, EU No 2019/1021, affects us about the demand of knowledge if any of the materials in our VOC abatement units, or the packaging, are concerned by the bans or restriction, for the use of persistent organic pollutants (POPs). These substances have particularly serious health and environmental properties, see echa.europa.eu.
