Context, issues and problems

The hydrocarbons stored and used (tar and fuel oil) as well as the operation of a combustion installation are, in case of a malfunction, sources of air and soil pollution.

Furthermore, the manufacturing of bituminous materials is generally carried out in mobile installations, during periods of less than one year: a temporary permit (without enquiry or local residents’ opinion) is therefore frequently requested, in accordance with the provisions of article 23 of amended decree no. 77.1133 of 21 September 1977.
