Best Available Techniques Reference Document (BREF)

Best Available Techniques Reference Document (BREF) refers to a European Union range of reference works developed to exchange information between industrial sectors and non-government organization (NGOs) in different member states, and the European Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control Bureau (IPCC/EIPPCB). The EIPPCB was established in 1997 to promote the Best available technology (BAT) to reduce atmospheric pollution and promote effective monitoring of air quality.[1]

The European IPPC Bureau is part of the Circular Economy and Industrial Leadership Unit of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) Science Hub.[2]
