Rothenberg and Renneisen Author Law360 Article on New Cleanup Obligations for EU Industrial FacilitiesNovember 12, 2015 The article, "New Cleanup Obligations for EU Industrial Facilities," by O'Melveny & Myers' Eric Rothenberg and John Renneisen, was published in the November 12, 2015, edition of Law360. The article describes new guidance under the EU Industrial Emissions Directive (IED), which for the first time will require that "all EU member states incorporate requirements for a ‘baseline report’ and post-closure site cleanup into the permits for new and existing installations. As such, the IED has the potential to significantly increase site remediation and closure costs."
