Emission limit value
An emission limit value is a limit value that is used in pollution control law . It limits the maximum emissions that a technical system may emit .
The operation of technical systems is usually associated with emissions. In addition to air pollution, this also includes vibrations , noise , light and rays . If they cannot be avoided, these should be reduced. That is why emission limit values are specified in legal regulations such as EC directives, ordinances or permits. Emission limit values are also referred to as emission standards with the character of legal norms.
In air pollution control, emission limit values are related either to a concentration or to a load. In Germany, they are laid down in some federal immission control regulations.
