Explanations of the measurements listed in the table

The values from the 17th Federal Emission Protection Regulation (17th BImSchV) stated above apply to waste incineration plants in Germany.

Permitted threshold limit values are those values that have been specifically stipulated for the TAS during the approval process.

The continuously obtained emission data currently being generated at the TAS are described as the actual value according to current monitoring. These data are updated monthly. The values stated here are monthly average values that are calculated on the basis of average daily values.

Dioxins, furans and heavy metals are an exception. These values can only be obtained discontinuously. The values of the latest respective measurement are listed here.
