Measure biological waste treatment plants individually

As the operator of a waste biological treatment plant, you are obliged to have the emissions of odours and dioxins and furans determined by a recognised expert body to monitor emissions of air pollutants at regular intervals. A measurement report shall be drawn up on the results of the measurements and submitted to the competent authority for verification.

Emissions measurement report


The emission measurement report for discontinuous measurements (individual measurements) must comply with the requirements of Directive VDI 4220 Sheet 2 (Annex A: Model report for emission measurements).

The official requirements for carrying out the emission measurements and the presentation of the emission measurement report are derived from the approval notice and the regulations of the Ordinance on Plants for the Biological Treatment of Waste. In the future, the emission measurement reports will be submitted via the online portal "EMBE-Online".
