Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control, The EC Directive from a Comparative Legal and Economic Perspective
In particular, some provisions raise questions of interpretation which will confront national courts when interpreting and applying the implementing legislation in the light of the Directive. The authors aim to contribute to this discussion by analysing key provisions of the Directive in the context of national approaches and experiences and of an economic appraisal of the Directive.
The issues discussed include the notions of `best available techniques' and `best practicable environmental option', the issuance of single integrated licences as opposed to the co-ordinated issuance of several permits for one facility, and the relationship between the IPPC process with environmental impact assessment and planning law regimes.
