Environmental Permitting – Soft Drinks Factory

Environmental permitting is a legal requirement for many facilities, although not all are aware if it applies to them.  Without a proper permit, companies and directors are at risk of large fines and even prison sentences.  The permitting process can be a long and complex one and needs expert guidance.  We provided specialist support to a rapidly growing Welsh soft drinks manufacturer as its production level increased to the point that it needed a permit.

Client Wins

To support our client’s business growth, we provided:

  • Management of a large and complex environmental permit application.
  • A strong interface with the Environmental Regulator throughout negotiations.  As the facility straddled the English / Welsh border this meant complicated interactions with both the Environment Agency and Natural Resources Wales.
  • Help implementing Best Available Techniques at the site – the Regulator can only permit facilities with excellent environmental protection measures.
  • Support preparing and implementing a company Environmental Management System (EMS), another permit requirement.

Our work means that the manufacturer can continue to expand and develop whilst having peace of mind that they are meeting legislation.
