Reported data on large combustion plants covered by Directive 2001/80/EC
Plant-by-plant emissions (LCP) and information on derogations
The database contains plant by plant information for Large Combustion Plants (LCP) on size, combustion technology, energy input, annual emissions (SO2, NOx and dust) and operation under specific derogatory regimes of combustion plants.

The database covers plant-by-plant data for LCPs that fall under the scope of Directive 2001/80/EC. The plant-by-plant data includes total annual emissions of SO2, NOx and dust (as total suspended particles) and the total annual amount of energy input, related to the net calorific value, broken down in terms of five categories of fuel: biomass, other solid fuels, liquid fuels, natural gas, other gases.
It also includes information on derogatory regimes included in Directive 2001/80/EC, namely the following:
- Opt-outs: plants declared for eligibility under article 4(4) of the LCP Directive along with the record of the used and unused time allowed for the plants remaining operational life
- Article 5 or the provisions of the Nota Bene in Annex III or the footnotes in Annex VI.A of the LCP Directive (Article 15(3))
- Implementation of a National Emissions Reduction Plan (NERP) according to Article 4(6) of the LCP Directive
The database includes information from 2004 onwards, it is possible that the data for the first reporting period 2004-2006 contains some gaps.
Previous versions of the data set can be found at Plant-by-plant emissions of SO2, NOx and dust and energy input of large combustion plants covered by Directive 2001/80/EC and Large Combustion Plants (LCP) opted out under Article 4(4) of Directive 2001/80/EC
