Best Available Techniques (BAT)

Home \ Environment & Buildings \ Pig buildings & housing development \ Best Available Techniques (BAT)

Best Available Techniques (BAT) form a cornerstone of Environmental Permitting Regulations (formerly IPPC).

The BAT Reference document (BREF) describes housing systems and techniques that minimise emissions and environmental impact.  These techniques should be employed when planning new pig housing and slurry storage facilities. 

If producers can demonstrate they have been adopted when applying for Planning Permission or an Operating Permit, planners and the Environment Agency should be assured that impacts, especially odour, will be kept to acceptable levels.
