Since the release of the Commission’s proposal to revamp the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED), EFIEES has been closely monitoring this topic and paying close attention to the numerous amendments submitted at the ITRE and ENVI committees.

EFIEES initially questioned the need to revise the directive, in the combustion sector, given the significant improvements in industrial emissions in this very sector, while improvements in technologies are not expected, and existing investments are far from being amortised. Avoiding complicated and lengthy authorization processes, ensuring stability for future investments and a smooth transition to net-zero industry is crucial. Therefore, we urge the amendments to aim for an integrated approach that allows the best overall environmental performance while streamlining administrative procedures.
