Executive Decree No. 2006-138 regulating the emissions into the atmosphere of gases, fumes, liquids or solid particles

Executive
Decree/Order/Ordinance
Passed in 2006
Establishes emission limits for stationary sources, particularly industrial facilities, for certain gases, including GHGs and nitrous oxide. Notably, excludes a number of GHGs from the list of gases with emission limits, including CO2, methane, and ozone.

Requires industrial facility operators to keep registers of emissions released into the atmosphere. Prohibits such facilities from exceeding the emissions limits set under this decree and directs the operators to construct their facilities in such a way as to identify and capture emissions near the source. Further requires operators to treat emissions via chimney or pipe outlet, if facilities are approaching emission limits. Authorizes the periodic inspection of industrial facilities and subjects older industrial facilities, which are being upgraded within 5 years, to higher emissions limits.
