A new screening tool for assessing the likely risk to the environment of an unplanned release of liquids from above ground bulk storage tanks is now available free of charge via the EI website if you are a registered user.

The tool, commissioned by the EI's Soil Waste & Groundwater Working Group, supports the requirements of the European Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) legislation. It is applicable to sites across Europe and accommodates liquids including hydrocarbon products. It can be used to inform the best available techniques judgement allowed under the IPPC regulations. The screening also includes an assessment of tertiary containment, consistent with UK COMAH requirements.
