Description of significant impacts of activities, products, and services on biodiversity (304-1)
in protected areas and areas of high biodiversity value outside protected areas
Significant work has been done for the minimization of the impacts to the environment and the ecosystem. The refining sector has the wider application of the Best Available Techniques for the environmental protection than any other sector in Greece. The management of wastewater and waste is based on BATs resulting in zero impact on living organisms while air emissions are controlled based on the Guidelines for air quality and therefore the effect on living organisms is estimated to be negligible.
