OPRA data reveal progress on site management
ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT at paper industry sites is improving, according to the latest scores from the Environment Agency's operator and pollution risk appraisal (EP OPRA) scheme - but another newcomer to process regulation, food and drink, has yet to show progress. The Agency is also calling on chemicals firms to improve standards. OPRA data for Scotland, meanwhile, reveal a reduction in the number of poorly managed sites.
Johnson Matthey and Georgia Pacific are among the companies identified as having poorly managed sites in the latest OPRA data for England and Wales, relating to 2004. Other poor performers include textile businesses, surface treatment operators and food manufacturers.
