The European Commission has presented a regulatory proposal with its draft for a new Industrial Emissions Directive on Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IED). This provides for an expansion of the scope of application as well as extensive new and unnecessarily disruptive requirements for the operators of industrial plants. Among other things, it is envisaged that cold rolling mills will be included in Annex I.  

CIELFFA addresses representatives of the EU Parliament with a statement on the revision of the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) 2010/75/EU and strongly opposes the inclusion of cold rolling mills in the scope of application of the IED. Cold rolling mills do not have any particular adverse environmental impacts. The inclusion of our small and medium-sized cold rolling companies in the IED would not bring any additional environmental benefits. Rather, our industry would be burdened with unnecessary double regulation and bureaucracy.  

The German Cold Rolling Mills Association (FVK) has sent a similar statement to the relevant German Ministries BMUV and the BMWK. In addition, CIELFFA and FVK have also included their positions in the consultation portal on the draft IED opened by the European Commission.
