Cabinet of Ministers Regulations No. 1015 Riga 2004 December 14 (Mon. No 72 26) environmental requirements for the management of small boilers are Issued in accordance with the law "on pollution" in the second paragraph of article 24.2 i. General questions 1. provisions shall be set out in specific environmental requirements for polluting activities-small boilers (incineration plants) management. 2. the rules apply to polluting activities of category C — small boilers, which entered the management of heat capacity: up to 5 megawatts from 0.2 2.1 if the small boilers using gaseous fuels or biomass;
from 0.2 to 0.5 2.2 megawatts, if small boilers using liquid fuel, except fuel oil (heating oil). 3. If an operator firing into the territory of the other pollutant activities carried out according to the law "on pollution" or Annex 1. The Cabinet of Ministers of 9 July 2002, rule no. 294 "procedures of piesakām A, B, and C categories of activities and pollutants in question permits A and B category contaminating activities" 1. in the annex, the operator needs to get the authorization of the relevant category, and if the requirements laid down in these rules are minimum requirements to be taken into account in addition to the other requirements set out in the permit.
