GLRPPR Sector Resource: Best available techniques (BAT) for the fruit and vegetable processing industry

Title:
Best available techniques (BAT) for the fruit and vegetable processing industry

Abstract:
Best available techniques (BAT) are an important reference point in the environmental permit regulation for industrial installations in the European Union Member States, which have to implement the integrated pollution prevention and control (IPPC)-directive (96/61/EC). BAT correspond to the techniques and organisational measures with the best overall environmental performance that can be introduced at a reasonable cost. In the Flanders part of Belgium, BAT are usually determined at the sector level. The 'Fruit and Vegetable Processing Industry' [BAT for Fruit and Vegetable Processing Industry. Gent, Belgium: Academia Press, 1999] is one of the industries for which a BAT report has been drafted. In this paper, the main results of this study are presented. Special attention is given to the use of high quality water, as this is the key environmental issue of the industry.
