We currently regulate about 150 industrial processes under the Environmental Permitting system.

The Environment Agency regulates about 25 Part A(1) processes within Sheffield and they also have responsibility for environmental control of waste operations, licensing and permitting.

Regulated processes

The range of regulated processes in Sheffield is quite varied and includes incineration, metalworks, printworks, refractory manufacture, coatings manufacture and uses, bulk cement processes, roadstone coating production, surface treatment/cleaning, timber processes, mobile crushers and petrol filling stations.

For each operator the Public Register contains:

  • application documents
  • permits

  • monitoring results
  • enforcement details

Certain information may be withheld on grounds of commercial confidentiality or national security. In these cases we must place a Notice on the Register in place of the sensitive information.

Their permits also contain controls over energy use, waste production, raw materials use, accidents and noise.
