IMA-Europe, on the one hand, supports the IED revision’s focus on innovation and emerging techniques. On the other hand, the changes proposed in the use of emission ranges and the lack of transparency on the Transformation Plans will undermine the predictable regulatory framework necessary for fostering investments in R&D. In addition, the proposed scope enlargement jeopardizes turning the IED into a broad but inefficient policy, seeking pollutants reductions from sectors such as minerals extraction with already minimal emissions to air and water.
