Establishment and substantiation of proposed maximum permissible air emissions

In accordance with Federal Law No 96-FZ “On air protection”, a maximum permissible emission is a permitted air emission of a pollutant (measured as weight or mass of a chemical or a combination of chemicals, microorganisms and other substances, or as an activity rate of radioactive substances) from a stationary source and/or a combination of stationary sources, within which air protection requirements are met.

The maximum permissible emissions (MPE) are set by businesses themselves based on the acceptable levels of anthropogenic stress on the environment, the quality requirements to environmental components, and process-related standards. The proposed MPEs are then specified in substantiation documentation developed both for individual sources of pollution and for whole plants or groups of plants.

Environmental emissions of chemicals, radioactive and other substances, and microorganisms within the established MPEs are allowed on the basis of permits issued by environmental supervisory authorities.

The objectives of the MPE-related activities are:

  • Establish MPE levels;
  • Develop economically and technically feasible measures to ensure that the air impact is permissible and that concentrations of pollutants is reduced to within standards (where necessary);
  • Procure a permit for air emissions.

Specific activities by SHANECO include:

  • Stock-taking of emission sources;
  • Assessment of air quality (taking into account background pollution levels);
  • Assessment of actual air impact against sanitary and health standards;
  • Establishment of MPE levels;
  • Substantiation of emission reduction measures (through technology improvement, installation of gas treatment units, modernisation of existing gas treatment units, use of less toxic materials etc.);
  • Development and approval of an action plan to reduce emissions during unfavourable weather conditions;
  • Calculation of payments for air emissions;
  • Development of an environmental monitoring programme to manage emissions;
  • Participation in the review of the proposed MPE levels by relevant authorities;
  • Procurement of an emission permit.
