State of the Art for Surface Treatment of Metals and Plastic by an Electrolytic for Chemical Process (Galvanic Industry)
As an Austrian contribution and data basis for the revision of the EU Best Available Technique Reference Document (BREF) "Surface treatment of metals and plastics", a report was drawn up that describes the state of the art in the Austrian surface treatment of metals industry. BREFs are created on the basis of the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED; Directive 2010/75/EU) in the so- called Sevilla-process, and define best available techniques and the emissions associated with their use. At the end of the EU BREF revision process, a chapter of the revised BREF, the so-called BAT conclusions, will be published in the Official Journal as an EC implementation decision. No later than four years after publication, the state of the art specified in the BAT conclusions must be observed by such industrial installations that are covered by the respective BAT conclusions. In Austria, the specifications relevant to waste water are implemented nationally in general binding rules, in this case in the Waste Water Emissions Ordinance on Surface Treatment.
