EU countries want to delay tougher LCP emissions limits

The European Commission must delay rules set to tighten limits on NOx emissions from Large Combustion Plants (LCPs), environment ministers from five member states have said.

In a joint letter, ministers from Poland, the Czech Republic, Greece, the UK and Finland said the draft LCP BREF, published in July, required “further improvements” before member states vote on the final version.
