  • The adoption of the new text of the Law of integrated pollution prevention and control situates us, by the action of Directive 2010/75 of industrial emissions, to a new way of understanding the scope of the best available techniques. In this sense, it should be seen an evolution in the legal treatment of the best available techniques from its legal birth under the Directive 96/61 until the present moment. Evolution that emphasizes its dimension of pseudo standard legal beyond mere technical documents, what causes legal consequences concerning best available techniques are part of the compulsory subject of the integrated environmental permit.
