The goal of the environmental protection regulations is to prevent environmental contamination as well as to remove and decrease harm caused by contamination considering local conditions. The regulations concern, among other things, wastewater treatment, fuel and chemical storage, the reduction of noise and shaking as well as air pollution control.
