BAT REFERENCE DOCUMENT ON LARGE COMBUSTION PLANTS (BREF-LCP)
The European IPPC Bureau in early July 2013 published the first draft of the revised BREF document for large combustion plants larger than 50 MW, i.e. those plants which do not fall under the BREF on pulp and paper manufacturing (BREF-PP) (ENV/181/13).
All kinds of conventional power plants (e.g. utility boiler plants, combined heat and power plants, district heating plants) used for mechanical power and heat generation are covered in this work. Industrial combustion installations are covered if they use conventional fuel. The commercial availability of the fuel on the market has been used as an indicator to identify conventional fuels. The criterion for classifying a fuel as a 'conventional fuel' is a known composition which remains relatively constant, and indeed is usually standardised. Coal, lignite, biomass, peat, liquid and gaseous fuels (including hydrogen and biogas) are regarded as conventional fuels. The use of waste as a secondary fuel is also covered in this work.
All stakeholders including industry experts from the pulp and paper sector are welcome to spend some time this summer to read the draft document, identify issues/technologies/sections of concern, and prepare comments using the following template (ENV/182/13)! Please focus on the most relevant chapters, but read especially the BAT conclusions carefully (chapter 10).
CEPI will coordinate the response from the pulp and paper industry sector regarding this work. Within CEPI structure, this task will be shared between the Climate Change and Energy Committee and the Environment Committee.

The first draft BREF-LCP document consists of in total 899 pages. The document has therefore been split per chapter:
? Chapter 1 - front page, preface, scope, general introduction
? Chapter 2 - process for energy generation
? Chapter 3 - general processes and techniques applied to prevent/reduce emissions and consumption
? Chapter 4 – gasification
? Chapter 5 - combustion of solid fuels
? Chapter 6 - combustion of liquid fuels
? Chapter 7 - combustion of gaseous fuels
? Chapter 8 - multi-fuel combustion
? Chapter 9 - waste co-incineration
? Chapter 10 - BAT conclusions for large combustion plants
? Chapter 11 - emerging techniques
? Chapter 12 - concluding remarks and recommendations for future work
? Chapter 13 - annexes, references, glossary
