The Directive on the limitation of emissions of certain pollutants into the air from large combustion plants (LCP Directive, 2001/80/EC) applies to combustion plants with a rated thermal input equal to or greater than 50 MW, irrespective of the type of fuel used (solid, liquid or gaseous)

European data

Plant-by-plant emissions (LCP)

The Excel file contains contains plant-by-plant LCP data for 2010, 2011 and 2012 including 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. This information was reported by Member States to the Commission. The Excel-file represents the status of the database in January 2015.

Additional information

According to Annex VIII.B of the LCP Directive, Member States shall establish, starting in 2004 and for each subsequent year, an inventory of SO2, NOx and dust emissions from all combustion plants covered by the Directive with a rated thermal input of 50 MW or more. The inventory will include information on a plant-by-plant basis concerning the 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 the five categories of fuel: biomass, other solid fuels, liquid fuels, natural gas, other gases. A summary of the results of this inventory that shows the emissions from refineries separately shall be communicated to the Commission on a triennial basis. The yearly plant-by-plant data shall be made available to the Commission upon request.
