Combustion plant pollution law too broad – MEPs

MEPs say the draft Medium Combustion Plants (MCP) Directive proposed by the European Commission needs to be “fine-tuned” because a “one size fits all” approach will not work

MEPs say the draft Medium Combustion Plants (MCP) Directive proposed by the European Commission needs to be “fine-tuned” because a “one size fits all” approach will not work.

Rapporteur Andrzej Grzyb of the EPP group said that while the proposal from December 2013 was a “step in the right direction”, its provisions need to be made more specific.
