Description: 
Limits of industrial emissions. The ABM includes emission requirements and standards for combustion plants (boilers) and criteria for biofuels. There were major changes in the emission regimes for combustion plants since 1 January 2013. These changes are partly due to the installation of the BEMS and the implementation of the IPA in the Activities Decree. Harmonized European standards are regulated for solid biomass fired boilers and stoves. Demands are placed regarding emissions and efficiency of these plants. In some cases, countries impose additional (emission) requirements to participate. For boilers and stoves in use in the Netherlands, additional requirements shall not be liable for applications that are not covered by the Activities Decision.The standards for those (not included) systems are in development.
