Solvent management plans are the basis of regulatory compliance with solvent emission installation permits.  An SMP is best used to as both an operational tool, and a method of demonstrating compliance with key environmental standards.  The session will look at an example of solvent mass tracking and the use of that metric for preparing SMP’s.  it will also demonstrate how the SMP can be used to highlight additional areas of interest to reduce solvent usage.  Each SMP is particular to the process it is created for and should be tailored accordingly.  This talk illustrates a sensible and pragmatic approach to creating a site specific SMP that is both fully compliant with legal requirements and useful to the operator

Back by popular demand, we ran this session some years ago with permit conditions,  evaluating a number of conditions against the CREW standard… this mirror session is designed to focus on planning conditions.  We will look at the basic requirements for planning conditions, the six tests, the groundwork for the conditions in terms of policy background, and ultimately review a number of conditions in context.  Please note, this session is the trainers view of the conditions and is normally presented as a syndicate exercise for discussion, some conditions being deliberately provocative.  As a web based E-tool that isn’t possible so the analysis is based on the site specific scenario presented and conflicting arguments on suitability will be summarised in a SWOT type analysis of the conditions
