Industrial chimneys

Under the Clean Air Act 1993 it is an offence for dark smoke to be emitted from any chimney serving a furnace or boiler or industrial plant on trade or industrial premises. The Environmental Protection Section can take action on a first offence under the Clean Air Act 1993, or take enforcement action under the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2010 if the premises is regulated under this legislation. See the PPC Public Register for a list of all the processes we regulate in Coventry.

If you see dark smoke being emitted from an industrial chimney please report it to us.
