Environmental controls applicable to urban waste treatment facilities referred to in the PDSGRUM are regulated through a Programme of Measures and specific environmental monitoring (in later PMVA), approved by a resolution of the Consellera de Medi Ambient and published in the Official Gazette of les Illes Balears (BOIB No. 59 of 17 May 2001), which has been complementing / updating of the integrated environmental authorisation requirements (in later ensuite) facilities included in the regulatory framework of IPPC (plant of anaerobic digestion and composting of zone 1; Solar sludge drying plant; Waste to energy Plant, production of Ecoarido and security deposit; (and deposit of rejections of zone 2).
