Orgalime industries are committed to apply manufacturing processes that are environmentally sound, protecting the health of employed workers so as cost effective and innovative. Our industries been actively involved in the implementation of Directive 96/61 on IPPC through the so-called Seville Process.
We particularly participate in the development of the following BAT-Reference documents: Foundries, Ferrous Metals processing, Non ferrous metals production and processing, Iron & steel, large Combustion Plants, Surface Treatment of metals, Polymers, Waste Treatment (previously/disposal activities), Energy Efficiency, Waste Incineration, Surface Treatment using solvents, Paper/pulp, Cooling system; Orgalime was also engaged in the consultation process held by the European Commission on the review of the IPPC directive and concludes that in many areas the existing experience is limited and therefore is often insufficient to justify many of the conclusions drawn in the different review studies.
