As the European Parliament is voting March 11 on its report on the Integrated Pollution and Prevention and Control Directive and Member States will decide in the March EU Council.  The EHA reinforced its attempts to convince law makers that the authorisation of small H2 reformers should be facilitated by the new Directive. Letters were sent to both the EP rapporteur and the Commission: although the perception seems to persist that the market for these reformers is still small and therfore not worth considering, facilitated authorisation of these smaller units is crucial for the first demonstration projects that are currently being launched under the JTI programme. Under the current Directive proposal small reformers will still need to follow the same procedures as for large scale systems.
