Part B Processes / Installations

Combustion plant with a thermal input capacity of 20-50MW will generally be regulated by Local Authorities in England and Wales (under LAPPC) and by SEPA in Scotland.

The relevant Guidance Notes issued by Defra, are:

  • PG1/3 Boilers and Furnaces, 20-50MW Net Rated Thermal Input.
  • PG1/4 Gas Turbines, 20-50MW Net Rated Thermal Input.
  • PG1/5 Compression-ignition Engines, 20-50MW Net Rated Thermal Input.

These Guidance Notes are issued as a guide to local enforcing authorities on the techniques appropriate for the control of air pollution for the process.

In the case of Part B plants, it is the rated input of the individual gas turbine, engine or boiler that is compared with the 20-50MW threshold and regulated accordingly. Aggregation of the rating of multiple units of plant is not carried out.

The UK CHP Development Tool is the latest version of the map, originally developed as a tool aimed at assisting power station developers consider the opportunities for supplying heat and development of combined heat and power (CHP) as required under planning policy. However, it can also be used by both small and large organisations to help identify the locations where the supply of CHP heat would have the greatest potential, and therefore the largest positive environmental impact.
