As an industrial enterprise, we always base our activities on nature-friendly principles – we use resources prudently, do more for the environment than required by laws and regulations, and minimise the environmental footprint throughout the entire chain. The future bioproducts production complex will not be an exception.
As the developer of the future complex, we place great importance on a constant and open dialogue with the local community and their maximum possible engagement in discussions and feedback provision.
The prerequisites to establishing the complex and obtaining the activity licences include the design of the technology and the construction and operation of the complex in accordance with the environmental requirements applicable in Estonia and the European Union, the Best Available Techniques (BAT) and the needs of the Estonian economy and society. In addition to the BAT requirements, the improved technologies of recent new factories will also be taken into account, in order to ensure the establishment of the most modern solution from the aspects of both technology and the environment.
The complex requires an integrated environmental permit which grants the right to use the complex or a part thereof in a manner that ensures that the impact of its operation on the environment, human health and wellbeing, property and cultural heritage is as small as possible. The requirements established by an integrated permit must ensure the protection of water, air and soil and the handling of waste generated in the complex in a manner that prevents the transfer of contamination from one environmental element such as water, air or soil to another.
