Principles guiding EURATEX’s actions
Proportionality for SME textile factories in the EU.
Diversity in emissions limit values.
Alignment between Textile BREF and Industrial Emissions Directive.
Industrial Emissions Directive
The Directive identifies industrial activities that are required to operate in accordance with a permit granted by the authorities in EU Member States. The proposed revision aims to improve the Directive by increasing the focus on energy, water and material efficiency, reuse, and safer industrial processes.
• Alignment of the Revision and the Sevilla process outcomes is necessary, and thus, the recently finalised and negotiated TXT BREF i.e., Best Available Techniques documents.
• Diversity in emissions levels must be reflected due to the production variety of individual textile manufacturers, for example, ranging from technical textile to consumer goods.
• Business confidentiality must be ensured with new provisions.
