Integrated permit for composting plants

Under the current Environmental Protection Act, the operation of installations listed in the regulation on the types of installations that may cause significant pollution of individual natural elements or the environment as a whole requires an integrated permit. As the name suggests, this permit covers all scopes of environmental impact, i.e.: emissions of gases and dust into the air, water intake, sewage disposal, waste management, impact on the Earth’s surface. These permits are issued, by administrative decision, by the relevant authority, for an indefinite period.

Composting plants requiring an integrated permit are installations built for recovery or a combination of recovery and disposal with a treatment capacity of more than 75 tonnes per day.

If you are treating waste within the limit specified above i.e., your installation requires an integrated permit.
