IMPEL project presented at IWA World congress on Water, Climate and Energy
Point source discharges and effluents from industrial activities are amongst the main reason across EU Member States which create significant pressures on the aquatic ecosystem.
The IMPEL project, “Linking the implementation of the Water Framework Directive to the implementation of the IPPC Directive,” has developed two reports on linkages between both directives and on challenges and best practices in the EU Member States.
The project has recently been presented in the general program and one of the main workshops at the IWA World Congress on Water, Climate and Energy 2012 in Dublin, from May 13 -18, 2012.
It has been agreed to build up co-operation on this subject as the next step and then to learn from each other how these challenges can be better addressed.
