Question for written answer E-000830/2020
to the Commission
Rule 138
César Luena (S&D)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Non-recycled waste streams and monitoring of the circular economy

The European Green Deal stresses the importance of the circular economy, and this must be strengthened in the forthcoming Action Plan currently being finalised by the Commission. The Commission calculates that only 12 % of the materials in use come from recycling. If we are to speed up the transition to a circular economy, recycling must be drastically stepped up therefore.

1. What measures will the Commission be adopting, including co-funding of innovative projects, to ensure that waste streams that are not recycled at present will be recycled in the future?

2. Is the Commission working on a methodology to account for the results of chemical recycling in the Member States’ recycling targets?

3. What steps is the Commission taking to set up a monitoring or surveillance framework for the circular economy and, at the same time, establish how contributions from the various recycling technologies are to be collected and incorporated into this framework?
