Immingham East holds a Part A PPC (Pollution Prevention & Control) Permit with the Environment Agency for storing hazardous and non-hazardous bulk liquid wastes for off-site disposal or recovery. The terminal is also permitted to carry out water separation activities and the recovery of the separated hazardous and non-hazardous waste. Additionally, water treatment facilities provide the capability for the disposal of separated waste water. These activities cover a wide range of permitted EWC (European Waste Catalogue) codes.

In order to meet permitting requirements and to uphold Inter Terminals’ commitment to personal and process safety, WAMITAB (formerly the Waste Management Industry Training & Advisory Board) qualified personnel are located at the terminal.
