THIRD MEETINGS FOR THE TWG HELD IN THE MPCs

30th November 2012 | Updated: 3rd December 2012

During November, the third Technical Working Group (TWG) meetings took place in Tunisia (6th November 2012), Egypt (8th November 2012), and Morocco (13th November 2012). The elaboration of the Best Available Techniques (BAT) Reports –one per sector and per country- was the main subject of the meetings.

The BAT Reports are divided in 6 chapters: chapter1 introduces the BAT concept; chapter 2 explains the socio-economic and environmental-legislative framework of the sector; chapter 3 is a process description; chapter 4 gathers available environmentally friendly techniques; chapter 5 is a selection of the Best Available Techniques; and, finally, chapter 6 lists recommendations from experts.

The aims of these meetings were mainly focused on the discussion of the content of Chapter 4 (description of environmentally friendly techniques) and 5 (selection of BAT) of the BAT sector reports.

Representatives from the Scuola Superiore di Studi Universitari e di Perfezionamento (SSSUP) (responsible for the Textile TWG) and Vlaamse Instelling voor Technologisch Onderzoek n.v. (VITO) (responsible for the Dairy TWG), with the collaboration of all Mediterranean Partner Countries (MPCs), organized the TWG meetings in each country and managed to get through the BAT-evaluation and to have the necessary discussions in order to publish the BAT Reports in 2013.
