«Application Details Class of activity: Class 7.7.1 The disposal or recycling of animal carcasses and animal waste with a treatment capacity exceeding ...»

-- [ Page 2 ] --

The Recommended Determination (RD) as drafted takes account of the requirements of the Directive. BAT is taken to be represented by the guidance given in the IPPC reference document on BAT in the Slaughterhouses and Animal By-Products Industries.

Emissions Trading Directive (2003/87/EC) The installation holds a Green House Gas Permit (IE-GHG037-02).

EU Animal By-Products Regulations (EC No. 1774/2002) The activity, handling, storage, cooking and movement and use of animal byproducts and the products of the rendering process, is liable to the controls required under Regulation (EC) No 1774/2002 and amendments. The Department of Agriculture and Food is the competent authority in relation to this regulation.

Incineration of Waste Directive (2000/76/EC) The incineration of waste does not apply to the burning of tallow oil as a fuel. The Department of Environment Heritage and Local Government have confirmed that tallow is a “product” rather than a waste. In addition Commissions Regulation (EC) No 2067/2005 of 16 December 2005 amending Regulation (EC) No 92/2005 as regards alternative means of disposal and use of animal by-products specifies conditions for the “combustion of animal fat in a thermal boiler process” (Annex VI).

Best Available Techniques (BAT) I have examined and assessed the application documentation and I am satisfied that the site, technologies and techniques specified in the application and as confirmed, modified or specified in the attached Recommended Determination comply with the requirements and principles of BAT. I consider the technologies and techniques as described in the application, in this report, and in the RD, to be the most effective in achieving a high general level of protection of the environment having regard - as may be relevant - to the way the installation is located, designed, built, managed, maintained, operated and decommissioned.

Fit & Proper Person Assessment The Fit & Proper Person test requires three elements of examination: technical ability; legal standing; and financial standing. Farragh Proteins is owned and operated by college Proteins Limited who also operate a rendering plant in Nobber, Co Meath and are therefore considered to have the technical ability and financial standing necessary. College Proteins Limited have not been convicted under relevant legislation. It is my view, and having regard to the provisions of Section 84(5) of the EPA Acts and the Conditions of the RD, that the applicant can be deemed a Fit & Proper Person for the purpose of this Review.

Compliance Record:

Farragh Proteins have been generally compliant with the conditions of their existing licence. The most recent site visit undertaken by OEE was on the 29/11/06. There were two non-compliances and a number of observations noted as part of the site

inspection. The non-compliances were as follows:

The licensee had failed to submit a proposal for the provision of an air lock system at the main entrance to the animal by-product/raw material intake building as required by condition 5.8; and calibration records were not available on-site.

The observations noted included non-submission of reports (bund integrity assessment), failure to maintain records on-site for inspection, and failure to update the waste water treatment plant manual.

The licensee has addressed these non-compliances and observations and in particular has included the provision of an air lock system as an objective in the 2006 annual environmental report. The RD also maintains the requirement for the provision of an air lock system.

Complaints Odour nuisance is the most likely cause of complaints in relation to the rendering sector. The most recent reported odour complaint was in 2005 when the licensee was undertaking structural upgrading work on-site and the integrity of the buildings was compromised.

Submissions No submission have been received in relation to the licence review application.

Recommended Determination (RD) The RD gives effect to the requirements of the POE Act 2003 and incorporates the emission limit values specified in the BREF for the animal by-products sector.

Charges The invoiced charge in relation to the activity is €16,895 for 2007, the proposed charge in the RD is maintained the same as the invoiced charge for 2007 as there is no significant increase in enforcement activity required.

Recommendation I recommend that a Proposed Determination be issued subject to the conditions and for the reasons as drafted in the RD.

Signed Patrick Byrne Procedural Note In the event that no objections are received to the Proposed Determination of the review application, a revised licence will be granted in accordance with Section 87(4) of the Environmental Protection Agency Acts 1992 and 2003 as soon as may
