VITO has a BAT knowledge centre (knowledge centre for Best Available Techniques). It collects and disseminates information on environmental and energy friendly opportunities in industrial processes.


The BAT knowledge centre selects the Best Available Techniques for different sectors, and advises governments and companies.

BAT considerations help governments and companies to achieve a high level of environmental protection under economically and technically viable conditions.
The Flemish government implements VITO BAT advice when updating environmental regulations (VLAREM). VITO is also at the forefront of Flemish ecological premium regulations. At a European level, the BAT knowledge centre actively represents Belgium in the exchange of information concerning the EU Industrial Emissions Directive.

The information about the BAT knowledge centre is available online through EMIS, the Energy and Environmental Information System for the Flemish Region.
