Medium Combustion Plant Directive

Published:  05 August, 2016

“On the 25th of November, the Directive 2015/2193 was published “on the limitation of emissions of certain pollutants into the air from medium combustion plants.” It will pass into UK Law on the 19th of December 2017. Referred to as The Medium Combustion Plant Directive or MCPD it plugs the gap between the Industrial Emissions Directive 2010/75/EU (the IED) and the “Eco Design” Directive 2009/125/EC.

It will apply to all operators and owners of combustion plant rated between 1 MW and 50 MW thermal input.

“combustion plant” is “…any technical apparatus in which fuels are oxidised in order to use the heat thus generated” so it will cover boilers, turbines, and engines.  The rules are intended to apply to both new and existing equipment.”
