Industrial air pollution
The Environment Agency deals with major polluting industries such as:
- power stations
- and chemical plants
We control pollution from small processes, such as:
- printing works
- car resprayers
You need a permit to run these types of processes.
Each permit sets out the standards and conditions which help reduce the amount of pollution given out.
We hold a public register with all the permits which have been given out to local companies. you can contact us if you want to see a copy of the register.
We hold consultations on applications for larger processes.
The public can comment on applications for these permits.
