Over the last decades significant improvements have been achieved in industry regarding the control of major polluting substanccs and gradually the environmental impact has shifted towards the so-callcd diffuse sources of pollution. Nevertheless, industrial processes still account for a considerable share of the overall pollution in Europe and it is very important to further reduce their contribution to "unsustainability". The European Union (EU) has a set of common rules on permitting of industrial installations. These rules are set out in the so-called Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control Directive of 1996 (IPPC). Romania is one of the countries which became a full member of the EU and is currently in the implementation process, in order to fulfill ail the obligations that apply to the Member States. A large number of these obligations derive from the IPPC Directive, which aims at the protection of the environment as a whole and the public health as well. In this framework, the paper aims to present a synthesis of the findings issued after a thorough examination of a large number of documents relevant to the Best Available Technologies. On this basis, guidelines were developed for the application of BATs for several categories of the industry branches in Romania. This paper concerns the developed guidelines for foundries. It was concluded that in order to reduce the emissions and to keep the emissions as low as necessary it is not sufficient to implement technical measures only. It is also important to consider the "human factor" in the environmental regulations. Therefore it is suggested that a log file of the maintenance actions be required to be reported in the future regulations.
