From 14-16 May 2012, the Cement, Lime and Magnesium Oxide (CLM) Technical Working Group (TWGi) met in Seville (Spain) to discuss and agree the draft Best Available Techniques (BATi) conclusions for the CLM BAT Reference Document (BREFi). This follows the launching of the process for the transformation of relevant parts of the CLM BREF into BAT conclusions under the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED). CEMBUREAU was present during this successful meeting and welcomes the BAT conclusions agreed. In terms of next steps, the European Industrial Pollution Prevention and Control Bureau (EIPPCBi) will now prepare the revised version of the BAT conclusions and adapt the CLM BREF to the provisions of the IED. The BREF will then be submitted to the Article 13 Forum for an opinion and the BAT conclusions to the Article 75 Committee for adoption by the European Commission. Formal approval from the European Parliament will also be required. The adopted BAT conclusions are likely to be published in March 2013 and will be translated into all EU Official languages.
