Circular economy: Four proposals on waste

10-03-2017

Wide differences exist between Member States in the treatment of municipal waste (landfilling, incinerating, recycling and composting). As part of a shift towards a circular economy, in 2015 the European Commission put forward four legislative proposals intended to improve waste management in the European Union. First-reading votes on the reports adopted by the Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety are scheduled for the March II plenary.

Closing the loop: New circular economy package

06-01-2016

Unlike the traditional linear economic model based on a 'take-make-consume-throw away' pattern, a circular economy is based on sharing, leasing, reuse, repair, refurbishment and recycling, in an (almost) closed loop, where products and the materials they contain are highly valued. In practice, it implies reducing waste to a minimum. Moving towards a more circular economy could deliver opportunities including reduced pressures on the environment; enhanced security of supply of raw materials; increased ...

Unlike the traditional linear economic model based on a 'take-make-consume-throw away' pattern, a circular economy is based on sharing, leasing, reuse, repair, refurbishment and recycling, in an (almost) closed loop, where products and the materials they contain are highly valued. In practice, it implies reducing waste to a minimum. Moving towards a more circular economy could deliver opportunities including reduced pressures on the environment; enhanced security of supply of raw materials; increased competitiveness; innovation; growth and jobs. However, the shift also poses challenges such as financing; key economic enablers; skills; consumer behaviour and business models; and multi-level governance. On 2 December 2015, the European Commission presented a new circular economy package. The package contains an action plan for the circular economy, mapping out a series of actions planned for the coming years, as well as four legislative proposals on waste, containing targets for landfill, reuse and recycling, to be met by 2030. The European Parliament advocates specific measures to improve waste management and to promote eco-innovation and resource efficiency. Stakeholders, however, voice diverging views on the proposed circular economy package. Please click here for the full publication in PDF format

New circular economy package

Moving towards a circular economy

A shift towards a circular economy could deliver environmental and economic benefits. However, it faces a number of barriers and challenges. As the European Commission prepares its new proposal on the circular economy, due to be put forward by the end of 2015, Parliament is scheduled to vote on a strategic report on the topic during the July part-session.

This report summarises the presentations and discussions during the Workshop on Plastic Waste, held on 26 September 2013. The aim of the workshop was to allow an exchange of views between MEPs, the European Commission, stakeholders of the plastic and plastic waste treatment industry, NGOs, public administration and academia. There is general agreement that plastic waste prevention is necessary, as is an increase of the recycling rates. Different ways to achieve these goals were discussed. These include better consumer information and labelling, a ban on materials which prevent recycling, improvement of separate plastic waste collection and sorting systems, a ban on the landfilling of waste with a high carbon content, and measures to make the recycling market more predictable, such as specific requirements for the use of recycled materials.
