European Organisations Welcome Waste Package Vote
Time: 2017-01-30 15:43:16     Author: Administrator

The European Parliament's environment, public health and food safety committee has adopted a waste package that enshrines the concept of a single method for measuring recycling targets as well as a 'closed list' on costs to be borne by producers when their products become waste. The Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI) is among the organisations to welcome the environment committee vote, claiming that it will 'strengthen the foundation of a truly circular economy in Europe'. In particular, CEPI supports the call to measure real recycling rates at the input to the final recycling process. CEPI also welcomes the call for quality standards and traceability in the paper recycling chain 'that will enhance targeted investments and serve the efficient functioning of the secondary raw material market in Europe'.
