The Ministry of Environment and Physical Planning prepared new law on protection from industrial emissions that fully incorporates the EU Industrial Emissions Directive thus introducing stricter criteria for the companies.

Advisor in the Ministry of Environment Besa Tateshi at Monday’s press conference in the Economic Chamber of Macedonia informed that the regulations in certain industries will be stricter.

There will be major changes on maximum permissible amounts of emissions in some industry sectors. For example, energy sector will have stricter maximum allowable amounts of emissions, Tateshi said.

Certain investments will be made aimed at respecting the stricter rules that are imposed by this Directive. Investments will be for technical documents and report that should be done by industrial facilities. And in regard to the administration, the costs will only include update of the licenses which need to comply with the Directive, said Clemens Konrad, Resident Twinning Advisor at the Environment Agency Austria.

Draft Law on Control of Emissions from Industry will be presented on March 14 (Tuesday) in the Economic Chamber of Macedonia. The new law is expected to enter into force in 2018.
