Best Available Technology (BAT)
  A technical term used to describe the best and most stringent technology, treatment techniques, or other means available for controlling emmissions, effluent, waste materials, etc. after considering field, rather than solely laboratory conditions. Molycorp is required to use the best available technology in its mining operations unless it can be demonstrated that it is unfeasible for energy, environment or economic reasons.
