RECYCLING INDUSTRY AND CIRCULAR ECONOMY - UP TO THE CHALLENGE

Energy, Environment and Climate
Date: Tuesday, 17 October 2017 17:00 - 20:00

Venue: Euractiv Network Office, Brussels  |  City: Bruxelles, Belgium

In December 2015, the European Commission presented a new circular economy package that will impact a wide range of sectors, especially the recycling sector. This package has set various targets in terms of recycling but also has introduced Life cycle thinking and measurement tools such as PEF (currently under pilot phase). By turning waste into new resources, recycling enables the circular economy.

FEDEREC carried out a study with the ADEME about CO2 and energy savings thanks to recycling. This study is accompanied, for the operational aspect, by a software allowing the calculation of CO2 and energy saving per materials. It was published in May 2017 in Paris and received a very wide welcome by French press and stakeholders.

Beyond the precise measurement of the environmental benefits of recycling, this study makes possible the link between circular economy and climate change policies adopted in the Paris Agreement.

This initiative is very much appreciated by the industry and meet the work done by DG environment in the PEF/OEF (product environmental footprint initiative) pilot phase.
