Cabinet of Ministers Regulations No. 726 in Riga on 17 august 2004 (pr. No 48 38) environmental requirements for chemical wood protection (waterproofing) Issued in accordance with the law "on pollution" in the second paragraph of article 24.2 i. General questions 1. specific environmental requirements, making polluting activities for chemical wood protection (waterproofing) chemical wood protection (waterproofing). 2. the rules apply to polluting activities of category C – industrial chemical processing of wood, also pressure impregnation (high-pressure impregnation), vacuum impregnation (waterproofing, low pressure) and wood protection against zilējum and mold. 3. If the chemical wood protection (impregnation) facility also carries out other pollutants according to the law of action "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 must obtain a permit, and the category of those provisions, the requirements laid down are minimum requirements to be taken into account in addition to the other requirements set out in the permit, which complies with applicable laws and regulations. II. Requirements for the limitation and control of contamination 4. Working space that is located in the high pressure cylinder of wood impregnation, protection work, fixing the tank area, concentrated wood protection products in storage containers and landing from the processing equipment, limited and be equipped with a monolith (pretinfiltrācij) surface coverage. Workspace capacity by at least 10% higher than the impregnating solution of the work of the maximum volume. 5. Working space covered with chemical impervious material that is resistant to chemical used remedies and sufficiently resistant to hydrostatic pressure of maximum izlijum. 6. Working space shall be provided in a closed room under the roof to prevent stormwater pollution in wood preservatives. 7. the room collected wood protection products used or managed as hazardous waste. 8. Impregnated wood from the fixation area moved to the storage area, when used for the treatment of wood protection products no longer Castle. 9. Wood chemical protection (impregnation) of the place where the equipment is made of wood chemical treatment against zilējum and mold (with dip method) that are stored in this process the necessary wood protection products, limit and be equipped with a monolith (pretinfiltācij) of the surface of the izlijum collection to prevent these chemicals into the soil and ground water. 10. Wood protection products collected wood chemical protection (impregnation) where timber is carried out a chemical treatment against zilējum and mold (with dip method), and are stored in this process the necessary wood, reused or managed pursuant to paragraph 19 of these rules. 11. after processing the wood against zilējum and mold to the storage area, when used for the treatment of wood protection products no longer Castle. 12. If the wood protection products are delivered by tank, it landed on the surface of the monolith (pretinfiltrācij) coverage and reception system of possible izlijum. 13. Wood protection products for the liquid from the tank-vehicles used for lockable storage tanks a fixed pipe connection. 14. storage tank shall be fitted with a fill level indicator to control the wood protection level in the tank. 15. the pipeline, tanks, working space and storage facilities for hazardous waste pavement damage immediately corrected to prevent pollution of the environment. About the crash or the distortions which may result in contamination of the environment, the operator shall immediately inform the regional environmental governance and the week it submitted a written report to the emergency or interference description and information on the improvements that will be taken to prevent such accidents in the future, or interference. 16. to prevent wood protection products in aerosol emissions, air flow of the vacuum pumps drained through water locks. 17. With air evacuation equipment funnel into the air flow (emissions) from a low wood chemical protection (impregnation) of equipment used in organic solvents. Harmful substances in exhaust points (.1) the height shall be calculated in accordance with the provisions of this annex. 18. chemical wood protection (impregnation) of boilers equipment operates according to laws and regulations on environmental protection requirements for burning (incinerators). 19. Hazardous waste (waste wood protection products, solvents and oils, impregnating process waste sludges containing dangerous substances, contaminated packaging) collected separately to recovery or disposal operator that has the appropriate permission to perform this action. The residue from the tanks, which undergo chemical treatment of wood against mold, zilējum and removed and managed according to the used wood protection chemicals or chemical product safety data sheets. 20. Containers and barrels of waste oil and other hazardous waste, as well as empty containers with wood of the stores with ramparts limited hazardous waste storage space with concrete (anti-infiltration) surface coverage. These rooms have a capacity of at least 10% higher than the volume of the largest container, and not connected to the sewer system. Any spilled fluid collected and managed as hazardous waste. III. the Operator carried out monitoring and control Operator data 21. Note the counting journal (on paper or electronically). Accounting journal for environmental State Inspectorate presented the request. The operator stores the information for at least five years. If the record is performed electronically every six months made log data prints. 22. the log Records contain data on chemical wood protection products consumption (litres) per month. 23. Hazardous waste tracking journal, according to the Cabinet on 23 July 2002, the Regulation No. 319 "hazardous waste tracking, identification, storage, packaging, labelling and transportation accounting procedures". The magazine also provides the following data: 23.1. waste oil (l);

23.2. sludges from chemical wood processing tanks (m3);
23.3. wood protection products, waste or residues (l). 24. If the operator did not take the waste management and sewage treatment, environmental inspectors after the State presented the request of contracts: 24.1. for waste collection;
24.2. for waste water treatment. 25. compliance with the provisions of the control of the State environment inspectorate. IV. Closing questions 26. If the wood chemical protection (impregnation) of equipment put into operation until the date of entry into force of the provisions and does not meet the requirements of this regulation, the operator of six months from the date of entry into force of the provisions submitted by the regional environmental management plan to ensure the protection of wood chemical (impregnating) equipment to comply with the requirements of this regulation.

Prime Minister-Minister of Economic Affairs j. lujans Minister for the environment r. vējonis annex Cabinet of 17 august 2004, Regulation No 726 of harmful substances in exhaust height detection methodology 1. Harmful substances in exhaust the total height of the H point is calculated using the following formula: H = Hd + h, where Hd – harmful substances in exhaust point theoretical height (m); h-harmful substances in exhaust point additional height (m). 2. Harmful substances in exhaust point theoretical height Hd low wood chemical treatment processes at the appropriate organic solvents (volatile organic compounds) to the amount of maximum exhaust (table).

Organic solvents (volatile organic compounds) the maximum amount of the spill per hour (kg/h) the exhaust point theoretical height (m) 1 8 2 10 3 12 4 14 5 15 6 16 3 Hd >. Harmful substances in exhaust point additional height (h) is the difference between the base rate and .1 Supreme 15 x Hd metres of existing or planned buildings roof, if people are staying longer in the building for eight hours a day ().
