None; however data and analysis on these systems is held on the European Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control Bureau’s (EIPPCB) Best Available Techniques Information System.

Information on the operational practice of waste incineration plants across Europe is also contained within the current draft of the Best Available Techniques (BAT) Reference Document published by the EIPPCB, available here http://eippcb.jrc.ec.europa.eu/reference/BREF/WI/WI_BREF_FD_Black_Watermark.pdf
