Openness rating:

The PRTR Waste and Wastewater Management sector includes the following activities: (a) Installations for the recovery or disposal of hazardous waste receiving 10 tonnes per day. (b) Installations for the incineration of non-hazardous waste in the scope of Directive 2000/76/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 4 December 2000 on the incineration of waste (OJ L 332, 28.12.2000, p. 91) with a capacity of 3 tonnes per hour. (c) Installations for the disposal of non-hazardous waste with a capacity of 50 tonnes per day. (d) Landfills (excluding landfills of inert waste and landfills, which were definitely closed before 16.7.2001 or for which the after-care phase required by the competent authorities according to Article 13 of Council Directive 1999/31/EC of 26 April 1999 on the landfill of waste (OJ L 182, 16.7.1999, p. 1. Directive as amended by Regulation (EC) No 1882/2003) has expired) receiving 10 tonnes per day or with a total capacity of 25 000 tonnes. (e) Installations for the disposal or recycling of animal carcasses and animal waste with a treatment capacity of 10 tonnes per day. (f) Urban waste-water treatment plants with a capacity of 100 000 population equivalents. (g) Independently operated industrial waste-water treatment plants which serve one or more activities of this annex with a capacity of 10 000 m3 per day. (The capacity threshold shall be reviewed by 2010 at the latest in the light of the results of the first reporting cycle.)

Provenance information Ireland's Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR) provides a publicly accessible and searchable database which members of the public can use to search for facilities in Ireland which are releasing PRTR pollutants in excess of specific thresholds or making off-site transfers of waste above specified thresholds for non-hazardous and hazardous wastes. The register also fulfills requirements of the Aarhus Convention, as a simple means of affording access to information about environmental emissions and transfers. A facility must report data under European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (E-PRTR) if it fulfils the following criteria: • the facility falls under at least one of the E-PRTR economic activities. The activities are also reported using a statistical classification of economic activities (NACE rev 2); • the facility has a capacity exceeding at least one of the E-PRTR capacity thresholds (Annex I); • the facility releases pollutants or transfers waste off-site which exceed specific thresholds set out in Article 5 of the E-PRTR Regulation. These thresholds for releases of pollutants are specified for each media - air, water and land - in Annex II of the E-PRTR Regulation. If a facility has emissions or waste transfers above the relevant thresholds, information is provided to the European Commission concerning the amount of pollutant releases to air, water and waste water as well as off-site transfers of waste. This information is then displayed on both the European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register and Ireland’s PRTR. Note that only the information reportable under PRTR is displayed on this register. The register contains data reported each year since 2007 for over 400 facilities carrying out PRTR activities. For each facility, information is provided for each year concerning the amounts above threshold pollutant releases to air, water and land as well as off-site transfers of waste and of pollutants in waste water from a list of 91 key pollutants, including heavy metals, pesticides, greenhouse gases and dioxins.
