Food and Drink BREF Update - Changes for emissions to water

With a number of key changes highlighted in the 2018 Food & Drink BREF, SLR has prepared a document drawing attention to the introduction of a Total nitrogen (TN) limit for emissions to water.

For plants that discharge effluent to water it is possible that current waste water treatment practices and infrastructure are not designed to remove TN. Therefore, should these proposed limits be transposed into emission limits, then significant re-design of existing infrastructure or construction of new treatment facilities may be needed.
