EU establishes best available techniques for the intensive rearing of poultry or pigs

The European Commission has just published the Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2017/302 of 15 February 2017 establishing best available techniques (BAT) conclusions, under Directive 2010/75/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council, for the intensive rearing of poultry or pigs.

Wednesday 22 February 2017 (1 years 4 months 1 days ago)

Best available techniques (BAT) conclusions are the reference for setting permit conditions for installations covered by Chapter II of Directive 2010/75/EU and competent authorities should set emission limit values which ensure that, under normal operating conditions, emissions do not exceed the emission levels associated with the best available techniques as laid down in the BAT conclusions.

These BAT conclusions concern the following activities specified in Section 6.6 of Annex I to Directive 2010/75/EU:

  • Intensive rearing of poultry or pigs': (a) with more than 40 000 places for poultry (b) with more than 2 000 places for production pigs (over 30 kg), or (c) with more than 750 places for sows.

In particular, these BAT conclusions cover the following on-farm processes and activities:

  • nutritional management of poultry and pigs;
  • feed preparation (milling, mixing and storage);
  • rearing (housing) of poultry and pigs;
  • collection and storage of manure;
  • processing of manure;
  • manure landspreading;
  • storage of dead animals.

These BAT conclusions do not address the following processes or activities: disposal of dead animals; this may be covered in the BAT conclusions on Slaughterhouses and Animal By-products Industries (SA).

The techniques listed and described in these BAT conclusions are neither prescriptive nor exhaustive. Other techniques may be used that ensure at least an equivalent level of environmental protection.

Unless otherwise stated, the BAT conclusions are generally applicable.
