The Nordic Council of Ministers, the BAT-group under Working Group for Sustainable Consumption and Production, has awarded Danish Meat Research Institute (DMRI) to deliver a review report on Best Available Techniques (BAT) for slaughterhouses and producers of animal by-products in relation to the Nordic industry. The intention with the report is to use it in the first step of the upcoming EU revision of a new slaughterhouse and animal by-products BAT-reference document (BREF). The project is based on questionnaires in which slaughterhouses and animal by-products industries from Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland were asked about their current production patterns, emissions and resource accounting, and relation to potentially dubious BATs (BATs that may be difficult to follow).

Summary

The Nordic Council of Ministers, the BAT group under Working Group for Sustainable Consumption and Production, has requested the Danish Meat Research Institute (DMRI) for consultancy aid and to deliver a review report on Best Available Techniques (BAT) for slaughterhouses and producers of animal by-products in relation to the Nordic industry. The report is based on research by questionnaires to several companies and a few competent authorities combined with the background knowledge of DMRI. The questionnaires to companies were answered by slaughterhouses and animal by-product installations from Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland, that are subject to the BREF. They were asked about general details in their current production patterns, emissions and resource accounting, relating to potentially dubious BATs (BATs that may be difficult to follow – based on own experience), and stand according proposed ideas for future BATs (DMRI proposed BAT ideas – based on own experience and expertise). Also, a few Nordic environmental permit writers/inspectors were asked about the key environmental indicators that they apply when issuing permits or monitoring slaughterhouses and animal by-products installations. The results can be used by operators, consultants and environmental authorities and are intended to be used in relation to the input from the Nordic countries for the upcoming EU process under the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) for preparing the new BREF for Slaughterhouses and Animal By-product Industries.
