Stakeholder Consultation - Chemicals, Products and Waste Interface
EuRIC welcomes this Stakeholder Consultation Paper, which identifies correctly most of the problems linked to the current legislative framework that currently hinders recycling. This is all the more crucial as recycling enables the circular economy by turning waste into new raw materials and re-introduces them in the loop and while saving both energy and CO2 emissions. In addition, recycling is carried by companies, many of them SMEs, providing an unmatched infrastructure throughout Europe. Improving the interface between waste and chemicals laws is instrumental to foster a more circular economy.
