Hi,

The European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (E-PRTR) registers the biggest players. In other words, installations that operate above a certain threshold. This is established by Annex 1 of Regulation 166/2006, which governs the E-PRTR.

These activities are related to the question made:

• Installations for the production of: (i) Cement clinker in rotary kilns with a production capacity of 500 tonnes per day, (ii) Lime in rotary kilns with a production capacity of 50 tonnes per day, (iii) Cement clinker or lime in other furnaces with a production capacity of 50 tonnes per day
o 49 facilities where registered in 2015 in Spain
• Installations for the recovery or disposal of hazardous waste, receiving more than 10 tonnes per day
o 110 facilities where registered in 2015 in Spain
• Installations for the incineration of non-hazardous waste in the scope of Directive 2000/76/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 4 December 2000 on the incineration of waste (2) with a capacity of 3 tonnes/hour or more
o 13 facilities where registered in 2015 in Spain

This information can be obtained at http://prtr.ec.europa.eu/#/facilitylevels by setting the country, activity sector and sub-activity in the left hand menu and then clicking “search”. The tool renders a list and also displays the facilities on a map.

For a more comprehensive analysis of the data you can also download the full Access database here https://www.eea.europa.eu/d[…]ister-e-prtr-regulation-16. The data includes coordinates so the facilities can be located over a map. There’s also a KMZ file that allows overlaying the information in Google Earth or other similar products.

An alternative is using the Spanish E-PRTR which offers additional information: http://www.en.prtr-es.es/

Kind regards
